C/2006 P1 McNaught in Daylight

Poster: Silicon Owl (see all of this user's photos)
Description: This is C/2006 P1 McNaught just five degrees east of the Sun on January 14, 2007 at 2:29pm in the afternoon. A few frames with the Canon 20Da and TV-76 at f/5 turned out OK but not great, a lot of dust and aerosols in the sky over Tucson causing a lot of glare from the sun. The photo above is a stack of three frames, greatly cropped in and levels adjusted in Photoshop.
