It was a beautiful night last weekend and had the chance to go to a remote frozen lake to shot the stars with a few fellow astrophotographers (and Pentaxians were in majority!). Comet Wirtanen is very bright on long exposures but still not visible to the naked eye. On the next weekend it should be even brighter and located near the Pleiades in Taurus, a photo opportunity not to be missed.

60 s with astrotracer for the stars and 60 s without for the foreground, blended in PSE14

Nice job. Lots of storms inbound from the Pacific over the next week. Hope we get a hole or two in the clouds to see the comet.

Thanks! Yes, looks like a road trip to Nebraska would give us a better chance!
