Comet Lovejoy 28 to 31 December 2011

Comet Lovejoy is fading fast and is becoming much more difficult to see with the naked eye. Aside from the 30th December when windy conditions (and exhaustion) prevented me from going out I was lucky enough to be able to image Lovejoy for most of the weekend.

If conditions allow I'm hoping to get at least another couple of sessions in, especially when Lovejoy nears the South Celestial Pole which will allow for longer untracked exposures.
