Comet Lovejoy Q2 Buzzes Past M45 Pleiades!

Comet Lovejoy Buzzes past the Pleiades M45!!!
The Bright Comet Lovejoy C/2104 Q2 was cruising past the Open Star Cluster M45 “Pleiades” aka  “The Seven Sisters” Star Cluster!What a wonderful view last night, the comet was amazingly bright in Binoculars!  If you own Binoculars, get out and look at this bright comet!!!! Hurry  you only have about a week left before it is lost in the glare of the Sun, as the comet reaches Perihelion on January 31st, 2015.  Look to the upper right of The Seven Sisters or Pleiades.

I watched & captured it on 01-15-2015 around 8:00pm from my observatories at JBSPO in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

I captured this image with my Canon 6D DSLR & 105 mm Lens, F5.0, ISO 800, on a CG-4 Tracking Mount.

14 x 180 second exposures stacked in Deep Sky Stacker.
42 minutes total.
