Panstarrs vom Fernsehturm

Comet C/2011 L4 Panstarrs observed from  Fernsehturm Stuttgart on 2013 Mar 15.

Photos taken with Lumix G3. First success at 19:18 MEZ, on a picture at 19:14 it is not visible.
Two more photographers and about ten comet watchers had gathered here. The easiest way to find it was using live-view at high zoom factor as done by the Canon 600 photographer. About 3 minutes later I saw it in my 7x42 binoculars.  It was a pretty sight, especially as the sky got darker.

Here is a series of 26 images between 19:25 and 19:55 MEZ. View as slideshow
