Once the clouds cleared, the comet was clearly visible to the naked eye just south of Saturn. This was a 6-minute exposure at ISO 1600 and f4, guided manually, at around 2am UT on 24 February 2009. What appears to be a short meteor trail can be seen south of Comet Lulin. A Canon EOS 40D and Zeiss Jena 135mm lens were used, piggybacked on a Celestron C8 for guiding.
