Hello All,

Attached you will find a raw, unretouched image of the crescent Moon and the Comet PANSTARRS. Photo was taken with a Canon 60Da piggybacked on a Meade 10" LX200 Classic @ 100mm, f4.5, 15 second exposure from Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

That is cool! I have not been able to see it from my house yet. Will probably have to drive out into the country.

Bill,

Very tough to see even out here in New Mexico. Best with a camera, binocs and/or telescope. And it is pretty low to the horizon.
