Pottawatomie Co., Kansas, USA.
I gambled on getting to my observing site before the clouds did and nearly lost. I made this image with the sky containg the comet more than 50% obscured by rapidly developing clouds. 8P/Tuttle rendezvous with M33 - T minus 20 hours and counting!! Canon Rebel XTi with an 85mm Nikkor lens @ f/2.8, 3 minute exposure at ISO 800. I have sent you a 1200dpi file of this image if you use it.
