Comet McNaught Take 4

My fourth set of Comet McNaught images. This time from a dark skies site about 35km NNE of Canberra. There was no cloud for the first 30 minutes after comet sighting but it slowly rolled in. Inspite of this some very nice images of the comet and the immense arcing striated tail, which im guess doesnt completely set till midnight.

Conditions were not ideal however due to blasting winds and a large amount of dust from the drought affected fields. The Moon is also just about to start having an affect on viewing. Please enjoy these shots and an Orion starfield for good measure!

Astronaut? nope. Been to 55000ft and Mach 2.1 but not quite that high. Yet.

Photographer... Yep, a bad one :)
