This isn't a shot to brag about, but at least I found it this evening.   If anyone else is getting some shots, please feel free to add them to the thread.  

 

I hope to be in a more remote location next week.   When we were in the Steens, we had morning views that were spectacularly bright, but the tail wasn't visible.

Jackie, very nice shot.  I don’t do enough Astro Photography to warrant buying a tracker, but I sure like your results.

Great shot Happyjax thanks

We have too much cloud cover these days/nights.

But a neighbor got a great shot about a week and half ago.

Should be around for a while,maybe we will get a break in the afternoon/evening

clouds.

I was fortunate to be at Bodie last week during the early days to the rising comet.

I'm still working on my images, and haven't been successful blending different exposures, but here's a single shot.

Thanks Andy what a great shot.

Here at the coast we are waiting for the fog to clear

by the afternoon so we can get a view after sunset.
