C/2010 X1 (Elenin) 2011-07-18

Comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin) imaged last night. It's getting pretty low in the west, so I could only take about 45 minutes of data before the background started to get too bright.

This is a track-and-stack using Astrometrica of 14 x 180s exposures, taken with an Atik 320E camera on a C11 with f/3.3 reducer.
