Big thanks for dedication, I'm very glad that yoy captured this beautifull comet. I tried to capture it, but bad weather didn't allowed to do it. Your photo is great - very clear and sharp, with excellent details of comet's coma and even few stars. Thanks again!!!

Sacaste la Zenith del placard!!!
Excelente captura de este hermoso cometa que aquí en la megalópolis todavía no he podido ver... me gusta la calidad de la presentación a pesar de haber sido digitalizado con buen post procesado.
Gracias por compartirlo con los que lo tenemos cerca y no lo podemos disfrutar.

sonrisa para mañana.

Hello Hernan,
Subject: not often seen on TN, very interesting
Composition: Excellent, strong impact
Sharpness: good
Technical remarks: some compression artefacts seen on the picture.
Overall a great job!

Best greetings and TFS!

Cool Hernan, I like it :)
Great post!

Great shot Hernan. I saw this comet the same day you did, but in Australia. I was not able to get a shot at all, but had good views through a scope.
This is well composed and you did a great job in transferring it from film to digital.
Well done

Hola Hernan,

Also "Themed"

Tfs, Jay

Beauty coment shot, a little noisy but that doesn't effect the overall feel. Good job.
