Comet Lovejoy

Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy is still visible in the morning sky, slowly moving into conjunction with the sun and slowly fading as well.  The image above was taken from Kitt Peak with my Canon 70D and my 50mm lens at f/1.8 with an exposure of 10 seconds at ISO 3200.  The image below is the same image with some curves adjusting - you can see the comet a little better near the center of the image.  If you know where to look, you can even find the globular cluster M-13 - the western half of the constellation is near the bottom just left of center.
