Took another shot at photographing the comet Saturday morning in the backyard. This time I managed to capture some stars in the background. Just so beautiful to watch the comet with naked eyes.

 

My setup: Celestron 8SE, ADC, 294MC Pro, Canon Rebel DSLR. Single shot.

Nice shot! As to where this is, for me, it’s been behind the clouds!
