Comet Lovejoy 27th Dec

Wow, what a great morning!
Totally surprised that the skies had sucker holes big enough to image through
Shelly and Jase joined me here in Kilcoy. Found a great spot just 2 minutes from home!!! LOL There was much chanting going on. Cleewd Disappear.....
Thanks for the loan of the lens too. It was greatly appreciated.
Soooo tired, this is my 3rd all nighter in a row.
Anyway ...
Camera Canon 550D @ iso 1600
Canon 10-22 lens @ 10mm F??
Various exposure times....1 minute for the dodgy group photo
2 minutes for full frame and 1.5 min for crop.

No processing apart for the crop. oh, and fixing up the lens distortion on the photo bomb.
But other than that, no processing. LOL

Just added original group self portrait...entitled...Warped Factor 3

If I was truly keen, I'd upload the recording I made of us chanting to the clouds.

Oh no It looks like we'll be having clear skies again in the morning!!
I don't know if I can take any more of this.
I had 3 all nighters in a row.
But I might see if our secret lake side position from this morning will give the reflection image I'm aching to capture.

I am amazed that I have heard an astronomer saying OH no it looks like we will be having clear skies again in the morning you should be ashamed of your self JJJ Make hay while the LoveJoy shines.

Wonderful images JJJ, I appreciate the views, as I haven't had clear enough skies to see the whole comet since the 23rd. I glimpsed part of its tail this morning, and your shots confirms for me that I did see it.

Thanks.

Great shots JJJ

I'd say that lens you got a lend off Shelley and Jase was pretty fast, given the ISO/FL and exp' length.

Fabulous, Nettie, and love the photobombers!!

Leon, I saw Comet Lovejoy this morning, but the only way I could pick it was that it was the only cloud that was vertical, and not moving lololol.

Good stuff Jeanette! Go on, a 4th day is required to sate the Gods of cometry (is there such a word lolz). My mum must think I'm a vampire, cos I'm up all night and sleeping all day ;-) if it's clear tomorrow morning, I'll have another crack at it myself.
