aimed blindly (Mississauga)

Did a test shot. Out of focus. Tried again. It worked. From atop the hot tub cover, I caught comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy). Fuzzy green dot almost directly below the Pleiades (Messier 45, M45).

Canon 40D, 18-55 kit lens at 24mm, UV filter, 20 seconds, f/4, ISO 1600, daylight white balance. Manually focused. Elaine's Gorillapod. No processing.
