The comet has really come around for those of us without the telescopes in the last few days. You can easily see both tails in binoculars now and they now show pretty well in a single exposure photo as well. No adjustments were made beyond cropping. 1:09 AM CST, Pentax K10D, Manual 135mm Lens, F:2.8, ISO 400, 241.5 Seconds. Mounted on a manually turned double arm tracker.
