Location of Photo:

Avignon, France

Date/Time of photo:

16h35 to 16h50 UT 2007/01/12


Digital camera Canon 10D, telephoto lens focal 180mm stopped to focal ratio 5.6, addition of 8 images, 1/8 and 1/6 sec exposure on ISO100 equivalent. No equatorial mont : a simple photo tripod.


The comet is near the horizon with many sorts of coloured clouds cause of the time between the first and the last picture. It was 7° elongated from the Sun. To realize this image I had a journey of 942km long from my home and return. The observation place was the Avignon TGV Railway Station in south of France.
