C/2004 Q2 (Machholz) – JAN 6, 2005

Comet this. Comet that. Sorry. This thing is just too cool. It’s right up on the Pleiades now, and the clouds had mercy enough for some pictures tonight. Light pollution was pretty noticeable in the shots, and processing it out is killing the tails. But here’s where I’m at so far.

I’m going to try finessing the images some more to extract the red sky glow without eradicating the tails along with it. But not just now. As I am wiped out.
