Pan-STARRS Again This time from Baltimore, USA
Mar 15, 2013

Another example of persistence. I got a semi-decent shot on the 12th with the crescent Moon. Last night was clear everywhere except where the comet was ... for 45 minutes. Holes opened up and closed down, but always in the wrong place. I even gave up a meet-up group session for that experience.

Tonight we had exceptionally clear skies, and a cold wind! This time I had a better lens (Nikon 70-300mm), but I kept it at the short end since I could not see the comet, even with a good pair of binoculars. I would like to have shot it at 250 mm or so to see if I could resolve a little more detail around the head. I have to get EyeFi working so I can pixel peep on my iPad.
