Default My last comet shots

I think last night was my last opportunity to photograph the comet PanSTARRS. These were taken with my GF1 with a 300mm lens.




While I was photographing the comet, this Great Horned Owl came over to check me out. It's really hard to manual focus in the dark!!!!

Nice shot of the comet, Saly! I like comet watching, but unfortunately in this part of the world it is quite long since we had a visible one. Hopefully ISON will put up a good show in November, which is still a long way to go.
