Details:
Comet 21P on Sept 13.1UT from well north of Dublin.


Canon 700D and 18-270mm zoom set at 70mm and stopped to f/6.7


Single 120 second exposure at ISO 3200.


Youll need to zoom in to see the comet left of (and slightly below) centre.


At top (from right to left) are M37, M36, M38; and down in bottom left is M35 (which the comet would pass in front of 2 nights later, as many have photographed here, but that night was mostly cloudy in Ireland sadly, though I did see it through breaks in the clouds in 10x50mm binoc but conditions not good enough for photography).
