Editor's note: Comet Lovejoy is currently visible near the Pleiades with binoculars. For details on where to look, head over to Universe Today.
I finally had a chance to capture Comet Lovejoy from the SkyCenter. This is useful since guests who get to enjoy this visually at the Mount Lemmon SkyCenter can also go home with a keepsake image acquired with the same telescope:
It was interesting that while taking the pictures it was possible to see changes in the tail/streamers. This is a very nice comet that really should appreciated—if you haven't already done so, time is running out!
