Fantastic image Asimov, a real beauty.
That's a great image as well Fringe_Dweller, I reckon the pylon put it into perspective.

Cheers

True! I hadn't even thought of that yet!

I'm blown away that view is over the Canning Bridge area.
The tower and stack looks like the Cockburn Cement works. Amazing that the two could be in the same frame!

I know exactly what you mean, I've had no end of drama's the last two nights trying to photograph in the stiff sea breeze on Rockingham beach.

I'll second that Mike - we've seen a fantastic collection of photos from everyone who has had a go. Thanks to all those talented photographers who have shared their results - it’s been great, especially for those clouded out souls who have yet to see the beast!

Cheers

Dennis

Many thanks from the Great White North

Hello and many thanks from Alaska for the fantastic images! As you know we have lost our view of the comet since about the 14th.
I found this site while searching for views from "down under". I'll look forward to many more so keep 'em coming! Great shots!
Kindest Regards,

Only a brief trip out for it last night, but it was worth it with the tail becoming so much longer and strong. More shots to process from the trip but these will do for now.

Hi Dennis - I am also new here, also from a different part of the world - and found this place in the same way as you did. The Australians are doing a great job here and they have made me feel at home - hope you will feel so too.

I'm glad McNaught came along for many reasons and one of those is that it has brought me closer to the "other" people of the Southern Hemisphere and these guys are seeing & experiencing what we see a few hours later - a really cool preview of events to be here.



Will add some McNaught obs. reports of my own - when I get to see it again. Sat in a meeting tonight, and it was cloudy yesterday and the day before. Saw it on Sunday naked eye in a break in the clouds and it instantly blew me away ... and a few short steps later I was here. I'll stay as long as they'll have me so I am trying to be a good girl and behave *chuckle*

Hi everyone,
It sure was a nice show after sunset!!
So many great shots being posted.
Lovely images Roger!!...
Heres my go last night through high cloud. It looked like a cloud out but on sunset the high cloud started breaking up and 20min after sunset NcNaught showed itsself. Glad I took the genesis up the mountain!!!
Here`s one of the last shots which shows of the extent of the tail taken with the comet head only about 2 degrees above the horizon.
Details: Televue Genesis and canon 300d approx 2 sec at iso 100
Some slight procesing in PS..
Cheers Gary....
Lets hope for more tail and Clear skies tonight!!!!!

Comet Mcnaught image Newcastle

Hello
Here is on the image I took from the 'Obelisk' opposite King Edward Park, Newcastle on 16.01.07. The image was taken using Canon 350D attached to Orion 80mm refractor. This image was captured around 2030hrs.
As the image shows there was plenty of cloud cover. It was amazing and fantastic to see the comet, at times very bright against the dark clouds!
Cheers
Kismet

I'm loving all these great shots.

I have some 16 + 17/01/07 B+W negs that are quite good, even with the camera shake from the strong sea breeze. I haven't got a neg scanner tho
Looks like we'll be clouded out tonight, so will do some prints and scan those. (including neg-print and print-scanner dynamic range loss )


BTW Garyh, love the contrail in that pic! Shame the plane's not in the shot.
