Comet Lulin from Renton backyard observatory

Comet Lulin on the way out...

I missed the closest approach on Feb. 24th due to clouds. Saw a 'sucker hole' in the sky last night and managed about 40 minutes of imaging before the clouds closed in again. Lulin was about magnitude 6.4 last night and fading quickly. At least I got a decent shot showing a nice tail this time!

Thanks for sharing. I missed it as well. I'm just getting into researching astro photography after running across a photo taken with a Digital SLR camera of a galaxy. I look forward to more of your pics.If you got Venus, I'd love to see it as well.
