I've been observing and taking photos of comet Lovejoy during several occasions the last weeks. I'm using an aging Samsung GX20 DLSR with rather poor high ISO capabilities so don't expect what you have perhaps seen NASAs Astronomy Photo of the day site. Nonetheless some of the shots I'm quite happy with so I thought I'd share them witih you guys. For the first two I used the SMC Pentax-M F1.7 50mm lens and for the third the Takumar F2.5 135mm lens.


The green mass to the right is the northern lights. It was a truly amazing display of the northern lights just out of the frame.

A lot of noise going on but I like how the composition turned out with the Pliades and Lovejoy in the corners and the shooting star in the centre.
