Comet Lovejoy

I went out a couple nights ago in the hopes of seeing Comet Lovejoy before it starts to get to faint to see. I couldn’t see it, but had a pretty good idea where to look more intensely and to point my camera in it’s direction. I made a few images zoomed in, but really it is just a smudge in the sky and so decided to make a wide-angle view of the sky over Red Deer County tonight as well. You can easily see Sirius, Orion and the Pleiades, and there, just to the right of the Pleiades, is Comet Lovejoy, a small green smudge.
