Location of Photo:

SaddleBrooke, AZ

Date/Time of photo:

December 11, 2013


50 each 15 second exposures stacked using an 11" Celestron Telescope with Starizona Hyperstar @ F1.9 and a Hutech/Canon 350D Camera. This is my second post of this photo but this exposure is 1/2 the time of the previous post. Sometimes shorter exposures give better resolution.


Closeup of Comet Lovejoy with a background of thousands of stars. There are not as many stars in this photo as my previous photo due to the shorter exposure time but the resolution of the comet is much better with the shorter exposure time.
