Details:
Comet PanSTARRS (C/2017 S3) on the night of July 9/10, 2018 with it low in the northeast from my site in Alberta. It is still very faint and not much to write home about even as it appears in photos. Lets hope it does brighten to provide a nice show in the dawn sky in early August before it passes too close to the Sun to see at all.

This is a stack of three 4-minute exposures at ISO 3200 with the Canon 6D MkII on the Asrtro-Physics 130mm apo refractor at f/6.

If I had been more watchful I could have re-framed it better to include the star cluster Tombaugh 5 at upper right.
