I used a Nikon D800 with a 300mm f4 lens on an iOptron SkyTracker
The United Astronomy Clubs of New Jersey's observatory site near Hope, New Jersey was clear but cold (10 deg F) on the night of Jan. 10. Comet Lovejoy could be seen in binoculars and proved to be a beautiful photographic subject. A low flying plane streaked through the first of 60 frames I shot of the comet, providing a multicolored accent to the image.
