Comet Lovejoy Pics. From This Morning!!!!!
I got up late and didn't have time to set up the scope but I captured a few pictures with my DSLR. It is not a naked eye comet from my location at this time. The first 3 pictures are with a 75>300mm lens @ 220mm. The last picture is with a 8mm Fisheye Lens to show how much light pollution I'm dealing with. Will try again in the morning.

I've heard people are seeing Lovejoy after sunset but I can't from my house because of trees and mountains. So not confirmed by me yet....lol

Thanks for the great pictures again! We have had two clear days now, with a bank of cloud on the western horizon. Today was supposed to be completely clear but we have had dense fog all day, that is now starting to clear to reveal - high cloud :(

I am still trying to get an evening view of Lovejoy, I live in hope.

Is probably easier to see in the morning if you have a good view of the northeast.

But I'm not real sure about the U.K. either.

Hmm, fog is back, right now getting a view of the end of the road would be an achievement.

Although it's higher in the morning it's still around 20deg above the horizon at evening astronomical twilight.

Yeah was the first clear morning here for two weeks. May go for a drive and see if I can catch it after sunset. No scope though, that sucker is heavy and way to much stuff...lol

Today it was clouds.

The light pollution is only bad up until about Midnight normally.

I'm soon getting a skyglow filter to deal with the light pollution.

The fog has partially lifted to reveal there is some mist and then low cloud between the fog and high cloud, not looking good ;)
