Comet PanSTARRS, C/2011 L4, is still an impressive sight.  Seen here on May 3, 2013 from Grandview
Campground in the White Mountains of Central California, the comet is 144 million miles from the earth,
 now less than 20 degress form the NCP in the constellation Cepheus.  The image was taken with a Canon
 1Ds Mark III, a Canon 400mm f/2.8 telephoto set at f/4, and mounted on a Losmandy G-8 tracker for
this 6-minute unguided exposure.
