Comet C/2011 L4 PanStarrs observed this evening. It was obvious to the naked eye and binoculars 7x50 the queue was long about 2 degrees. Highly condensed estimated magnitude 0.5 to the naked eye and with binoculars 7x50 using a star at the same height I estimated 1.2! The image is a sum of 5 photos 1 sec each at 400 iso with Apo Tele 300 mm f/5.6 and Canon 10D.
