Now I have to pretend steam doesn't exist for a while to stay on budget.
Stupid need to pay for rent/food/etc.... PFFT.
If you were disappointed with Comet ISON’s break-up last month like many, then there is another chance to see a comet! A Really Nice comet called Comet Lovejoy 2013 R1, Discovered by Terry Lovejoy of Australia, the Comet has been naked eye for many weeks now here in the Northern Hemisphere!!!
Look due East between 5:30am and 6:15am , just before dawn, its low on the horizon about 10 to 15 degrees above during this time, but it is visible to the unaided eye from a dark location… The Comet was 2.5 degrees South East of 3rd magnitude Star 65 Delta Herculis....Easily visible in Binoculars, looks awesome through any telescope, even telephotos lens capture it well,...
Even a simple camera on a tripod and 50 mm lens will capture it if you use a fast ISO 1600 to 3200 for a 30 second exposure.
