Lee says: “I have strug­gled with imag­ing comets in the past due to their mo­tion against the stars and try­ing to stack mul­ti­ple ex­po­sures, so this time I de­cided to take just one sin­gle, five-minute ex­po­sure with my DSLR and the in-cam­era noise re­duc­tion turned on. I was sur­prised at how well it came out af­ter some care­ful pro­cess­ing.”

Equip­ment: Canon EOS 1000D DSLR cam­era, Al­tair Astro Star­wave 102 ED achro­mat re­frac­tor.
