Comet Lovejoy passing pleiades

Gestern Abend hatte ich nach langer Wartezeit endlich die Gelegenheit den aktuell sehr hellen Kometen C2014 Q2 Lovejoy zu fotografieren. Der Komet ist schon seit Anfang Januar sehr hell und gut aufzufinden, bislang hatte ich aufgrund schlechten Wetters allerdings keine Beobachtung geschafft. Das hat sich gestern glücklicherweise geändert, außerdem kam dazu, dass er in diesen Tagen eine enge Begegnung mit den Plejaden (M45) hat, was das Bild noch schöner macht.

Belichtung: 40 Minuten (10x 240s) bei 95mm f/7.1 ISO800

Yesterday in the evening I took the opportunity to take a photo of comet C2014 Q2 Lovejoy, which is actually very bright. It could be seen very brigth and easy since the first days of january on the northern hemisphere, but I had no opportunity to see it before because of bad weather. This changed last night, furthermore the comet is passing the pleiades very close in this days, what makes up a very nice picture.

Exposure: 40 minutes (10x 240s) at 95mm f/7.1 ISO800
