One single 8s frame with the Samyang lens on the modified 5D MKII @400ISO.
This time we decided to look before sunrise, but we don't have real darkness here yet. But the comet was a beautiful sight! Image taken at 3 AM local time (UTC+2)
Just after this image was taken the ground fog came in very quickly and ended the session.
