Macro universe

I told you I would get the comet! The Pan-STARRS comet is higher up in the sky and moving north so now I can actually see it from my kitchen window. Since I have failed to find it so many times already, I sat in the kitchen with lights out and binoculars glued to my face and I finally spotted the darn snowball! Then I used my macro lens to shoot it, anything shorter than that would be too short and longer than that would give me nasty star trails so I used a “digital zoom” and cropped the picture to half. I got away with a 3.2 sec exposure, f2.8 @ ISO 2500 and ended up with a black picture with a lot of dots and two smudges. The smudge on the left is the Andromeda galaxy and the smudge on the right is the comet. Mission accomplished!
