Comet 2014 E2 Jacques

Comet Jacques made its way into being relatively bright this August. It was not something to see without optical aid however. A telescope or good binoculars were required. I took the Nikon D7000 out with a 200mm lens, attached it to the back of our observatory’s Takahashi refractor and then took a series of images. Some work in Photoshop stacking 5 minutes of images rendered this…..
