I blew this opportunity due to not renting a good lens this week. My long lens is simply too junky to get a sharp image in 30mph winds. All of the images I shot tonight were soft. I tried all sorts of tactics to block the wind, none worked. This one was the least-blurred of the set, enough to sharpen and size down so you don't see the softness that much. If I hade a larger image here, you'd see how bad it is.

I doubt I'll give this another go. Without the right equipment, it's a waste of time - not to mention the comet will not be lined up favorably for this shot after today.

Maybe not up to your highest standards Dan, but you still managed to make an image of comet Pan-STARRS. That's way more than most can say.
