D800E images a comet

This year there are several comets that should be quite spectacular. There are 2 comets around right now.

This one is Comet Lemmon and it is getting brighter each night. Only visible in the Southern Hemisphere at the moment and still on its approach to the sun it will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere in a month or so.

D800E, Nikkor 180mm F2.8 ED at F2.8, ISO6400, 45 seconds, Vixen Polarie mount, just outside of Sydney Australia.
