Comet PanSTARRS

Moon_PanSTARRS_inset_13Mar2013This evening, braving a very cold NW wind, we managed to capture this image of the comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) directly below the crescent moon, taken from the roof of the garage.

 

 

Using a Canon 1100D with a Canon zoom lens EF 75 – 300 mm ISO-400 f/5.6 for 2 secs.

Even with the camera on a tripod, the windy conditions meant half the images were blurred, due to movement.
