Comets & Nebulae

Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 is currently visible through binoculars in the night sky looking south. I photographed it yesterday but it was hampered by the bright moon. Hopefully it will be visible to the naked-eye later in the month. It looks like a fuzzy green ball...

For a guide on how to see it in the next couple of weeks see here.

I also captured the Great Orion Nebula last night...

Both photos taken with my 100-400 lens at 400mm, and both are single photos.
