Walking on the Moon

Another Lulin 01/03/09

Recommended Posts

Probably my last shot of this before it disappears into the outer solar system for the next 40,000 millenia. It's been a great little comet, nowhere near as bright or as long-lived as Holmes but the vivid colour and tail have more than made up for that. I'm getting right into imaging these comets, so roll on the next one - hopefully we'll get another great comet in the next year or two.

Single frame with darks/offsets/flats subtracted:
