Comet C/2011 L4 Pan-STARRS

The weather finally broke, leaving a clear western sky and a chance to photograph the comet. I set up and managed just a few shots before the comet set into the top of a tree across the street.

At least I was able to get on-sky. Much more than can be said about our ‘scopes on the mountain. Observing was cancelled earlier this afternoon, there is too much ice on the domes to operate safely. At least the ice was pretty, and photogenic.
