Comet Lovejoy Photos Posted

I managed to find a couple of windows to capture some images of Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2.  The first is a wide field showing Lovejoy west of Orion, visible as the green dot if you look just to the right of the center line about 1/5th of the way down the image.

About a week later we had a break in the clouds suitable for some real astrophotography.  Here’s a stack of about 100 one-minute subs of Lovejoy.  You can clearly see the unusual double bow-wave like tail of the comet.
