Canon 40D on a tripod with 55-250mm lens set to 131mm.


PanSTARRS was easy to find with binoculars but not visible naked eye. Half a dozen others and I had gathered at an overlook in the foothills of the Sacremento Mountains to watch the comet above the San Andres Mountains 40 miles across the valley. The young Moon made for a beautiful sunset for those without binoculars.
