Default Comet PanSTARRS (FZ150)

The comet is tiny and I couldn't see it with my bare eyes, but it started to show up on my camera at long exposure and lens zoomed in. This was shot at 4 seconds, which also brought out the dark part of the crescent moon. The image is noisy but I couldn't get rid of it with my Denoise software. The blotchy stuff I think are reflections of lighting. There was a soccer field close by which had its lights on for evening practice

Fantastic. Getting a picture of a comet with a camera. I saw Haley's comet back in the 70's in Big Bend Texas. That was a once in a lifetime experience, but back in those days I didn't have equipment to be able to attempt a picture. Truth be told it being there was totally an accident. I really like your picture.

Thanks JJ, Simon and dp. I tried again tonight, as it may be my last opportunity. I'll post it shortly.
