Image Parameter Details
Comments: The photograph was taken through the eyepiece lens, not through a camera connector. [afocal astrophotography] The comet is visable in the center of the photograph with a streak caused from the 15 second exposure.
[Unfortunately, I believe that is just a star. The comet would have been too dim to see afocally and with only a 15 sec exposure. At a minimum, if that is the comet, there should be some other stars in the field of view. EMW]
