First, I’d like to thank spaceweather.com for featuring my comet photos on its Comet McNaught Gallery.

Here’re the rest of my comet McNaught Collection. Click on the thumbnail for an enlarged version:

22 Jan 2007: This was captured between 30 – 60 minutes after sunset in Mt Donna Buang, Victoria, Australia.

24 Jan 2007: These were captured between 60 – 90 minutes after sunset near Torquay, Victoria, Australia. The sky was lit by the quarter moon towards the western horizon. It wasn’t a good day for real astrophotography as there were cloud patches. But they were definitely candies for landscape photos.

I personally like this one. The ground & the towers were pretty much dark as the moon was behind a small cloud.

This is for the star trail enthusiasts. 🙂

The effect of the moon was at its fullest in this one. Even the towers & the ground were slightly lit.

So what happened on the 23rd? Well, I went to Mt Dandenong that evening but the city lights were just too offensive to the night sky. Although the comet was clearly visible, as I underestimated the effect of light pollution, all the shots on that day were hopelessly overexposed. 😦
