Comet Lulin on Jan 30, 2009

I had to get up at 3:30 am to make a delivery to Hollywood, so was out in time to catch a glimpse of Comet C/2007 N3 (Lulin) in 10x50 Binoculars. It was fairly easy to find, but featureless compared to the recent images I've seen. I expect to have a recently ordered adapter arrive soon so I can get my own images. (The Mogg adapter will marry my Atik IC16 camera to some old Pentax lenses I have that have been sitting in a case since the 80's. The same ones I used to capture images of Halley's Comet on 35mm film.)
