taken on March 30, 2013, while the receding comet lay in the
constellation Andromeda. It is a stack of eight 30-second
exposures shot through my 92mm Stowaway refractor while it
gamely tracked along on my humble SkyView equatorial mount. In
the foreground are the trees into which it was rapidly sinking,
blurred by the mount's motion and simply by being out of focus
due to their nearness.
