Details:
Clouds prevented me from imaging the comet's encounter with M71, but I camped last night under a beautifully dark sky and caught Garradd as it was making a close southerly pass of Zeta Sagittae. 6" f/5 reflector with Canon Rebel XTi and a 97 second exposure at ISO 1600 at 03:45 UT Aug. 28th.
