This comet was shot at the Cabrillo College university as part of the Observational Astronomy course.

This was the first Comet I had ever observed, much less attempted to photograph. By September Jacques had already faded to Magnitude 11 but we decided to give it a shot anyway. After a bunch of processing the coma just shows up and the tail is visible if you use your imagination.

The poor quality of the shot didn't phase me, if anything it got me even more excited to attempt more astrophotography.
