Quote FINALLY got the chance to image comet panstarrs! I had been trying to find it two times earlier but without success. This time I got help from a very talented astrophotographer (Peter R). The andromeda galaxy (M31) is also visible in the upper part of this image. Not only did I image it, but I also got the chance to see it thru binoculars. The last time I saw a comet was when Hale-Bopp was around (around 1997). This image is taken from the central Stockholm so light pollution was a big problem. Quote
