Daylight visible Comet McNaught
This is comet McNaught, just about 6 degrees from the sun today in broad daylight. I wasn't able to see it visually (gotta find something better than a palm tree to block the sun so I don't get sunspots in my vision), but with only a little stretching, was able to find it using my camera and 300mm lens. If I could find my binocs, I'm confident I could see it.... This image was taken at 300mm focal length with an exposure of 1/400 seconds at f/8, ISO 100. (Thanks Richard for cleaning up the dust...)
