That turned out quite well for being in town and having a lot of light pollution around!

Thanks, I was quite pleased with the result, it was taken shortly after midnight when alternate street lights are switched off and the "extra darkness" helped :-)

I thought, why not use my FD/EF adapter and mount my old 50mm 1.8 lens and get a bit more speed. Turns out it was a bad idea. Best viewing night so far and I shouldn't have experimented. Comet looks OK but the stars all have a coma pointing to the center of the frame. Last night was the first time I could see it naked eye. Weatherman said most likely will start clouding up for the next few days, so this may have been my last chance.

I went 20 miles out in the country to try and get a nice dark sky.

What I found was that the city lights were in the background right below the comet. /facepalm

I don't use anything special, just scrapbook cardstock. Pretty much just an acid-free version of construction paper that kids use. 100 sheets for around $8-10 or less. Much less for cheap paper. It doesn't have to even be thick paper if you don't want a reusable one! You could even use printer cardstock, construction paper, or plastic sheets (just cut up a cheap binder).

The ScanNCut is basically a printer/plotter with a blade instead of ink, so it takes a CNC plotter approach to auto-cutting vinyl/paper/balsa. Makes for cutting things like viewfinder masks, cucoloris, and other patterned things easy. Cutters like the SnC, Cricut, or Silouette Cameo are popular with crafters for cutting t-shirts, cards, vinyl stickers, rubber stamp patterns, etc. If you know somebody who has one, you could easily have them cut masks for you. I'll bet that somebody you know or their wife/daughter probably has one, most likely a Cricut Explore as it's the most popular and basic. The Cameo is popular with vinyl/t-shirt people and the ScanNCut is held dearly by sewing/quilting people (and crazy people like me who have completely off-the-wall ideas).

If you have the time and patience, there's PDF files here (external link) to cut your own using the printed file, plastic sheets, and an Exacto knife. Again, they're for telescope tube sizes, but I'll bet that the 100mm is pretty close for most 70-200, 16-35, 100-300, and 100-400 barrels. The one I cut for my 70-200/2.8L II was 96mm for a tight fit.

I just sent you a PM on this.

Yesterday I saw a post that someone posted I thought in this thread, but now I do not see it.

The post was of this comet, but he had done a short video on youtube and he also had a done a time lapse of it.

It must have been posted in another thread. Does anyone know where this is? I would like to show it to my wife.

Thank you!

You may be thinking of these. He posted them in separate threads.

Thank you but these are not the same ones. The ones I am thinking of the sky was much darker, nearly black. SiriusDoggy does have a decent video!

Tried the 100-400 for shooting the comet tonight, had a bit of trouble finding it but got there in the end :-)

Tonight I spent probably 2 hours going thru all the threads I have subscribed to hoping to find what I was asking about here, and no I did not find it. I did this really 2-3 times thinking maybe somehow I missed it...sigh....

Now I am wondering/thinking did that person that showed the time lapse and the youtube video for some reason delete his post?? I dunno...

I really liked his posting, his video work better than what SiriusDoggy did, at least in my mind.

It is what it is....

I had a go at capturing the comet in my back garden last night.

I used my Canon 85mm 1.4 lens with a 6 second exposure. Not sure if this was the best lens or settings but at least I captured it.

May try and read up a bit more on best gear and settings and have another go tonight at a better location. We have a dark sky area not far away.
