Comet Lovejoy
Lens: Pentax 55-300 Camera: K7 Photo Location: Pennsylvania ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F5.8

It was a beautiful, clear and very cold night. I was able to spot the comet with binoculars. Had a tough time locating it in the viewfinder and even after finding it this was the best I could do with no special tracking equipment. If I get another clear night I'll bump up the ISO to 2000 with a 5 second exposure and see what I get.
