Lovejoy take 2 plus a few Geminids

Gave it another shot this morning. Maybe a little better than the one from yesterday but not much. I did see some shooting stars while up on the roof taking images of Lovejoy but didn't get any good pictures.

Caught a comet for Owen's birthday!

Last year I caught a meteor for my new nephew Owen when he was born. This year I caught a comet. Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy to be exact. Got up at 4:30am and spent an hour or so taking the picture of Lovejoy over SF and another 2 or 3 hours processing it. Maybe my best comet picture yet? Happy birthday Owen!

It's Pan-STARRS!

It's comet Pan-STARRS and it looks a little like an "!"!
Me and a friend just managed to get a look at Pan-STARRS tonight at work. It was cool but we did need binoculars or my camera+200mm lens to see it. I'm pretty happy with the pictures I managed to get. Keep looking west at sunset for the next week or so and maybe you can catch a glimpse of it.
