Comet C2014 Q2 Lovejoy

This gallery contains images of Comet C2014 Q2 Lovejoy taken with a Nikon D80 camera. The pictures were processed by the camera in JPEG mode and in some cases I performed additional processing afterwards to try and bring out the comet more. Most of the shots were taken at ISO 1000 with 5 second exposures using a 70-300mm telephoto lens.

Unfortunately, the comet is fairly dim and a set of binoculars will probably be needed to view it well. In the images, the comet is the fuzzy ball of light near the center of the picture.
