Comet and clouds

At last there was a clear evening with a chance to take a photo of the comet. It’s not so easy from northern latitudes, even Edinburgh, as it doesn’t really get dark at this time of year. However at least I caught it – along with some noctilucent clouds (right of photo).

Here’s the comet alone – you can see the sky is simply too bright to see the fainter parts of the comet, even at midnight. The photo is also taken from the city, with a pretty bright sky anyway.

These photos were taken with 1/10 sec exposure, f/1.8.
