Description

Here my only picture of Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2.

Taken from my backyard in a small town near Brescia (Northen Italy) using a Canon 350D and SkyWatcher Star Adventurer, my "fast" setup.
The processing was a nightmare due to the Light pollution (SQM about 18)

Thanks to my friend Luigi Fontana I've discovered that the red gradien at the bottom of the picture is the Sharpless SH2-245 Nebula!
