This is the first cloud-free, moonless night we've had here in NW Colorado in over two weeks. Comet Lulin is now easily visible to the naked-eye as it zips through Virgo. This image is a 6-minute guided exposure taken at 1:23 AM MST on 02/20/09 with a Fuji FinePix S2 digital camera set at ISO 800 and a Nikkor 300 mm lens at f2.8.
