Finally a night with clear skies here in Northern Norway. While comet ISON is getting all the media-attention, the sky is filled with so many more exciting comets right now and on the night 1-2 Nov I set out to see how many different comets I could catch with a DSLR in just one single night - and no less than 5 comets were visible. While comet ISON is still a real challenge to see visually, Comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy and 2P/Encke were easily visible in 10x binoculars. Comet C/2012 X1 LINEAR continues its spectacular 17P/Holmes-outburst and 154P/Brewington was only just detectable for me. While I enjoyed the comet feast, pulsating aurorae added to the beauty of the night sky. All photos are taken with Nikon D800 and Nikkor 300mm with 1,7 x converter and are stacks of multiple 20-30 sec exposures.
