People, lovely captures! Unfortunately there were clouds in the west :( could not take a picture.
Forget about finding the comet. I could not even see the moon! Hoping for better luck tomorrow.

Yes I did pick up uranus as well.  I went back and cropped back out and I also picked up Mars.  Uranus is the white star like thing in the middle and Mars is the reddish one near the bottom.  Bonus !!!

Great shots guys.  I now see why I am having a hard time seeing the comet where I live.  The mountains are about a mile higher than where I am at.  I need to get to the top of them.

Nice!

For some reason, I'm unable to post my picture.

However...the one I did a rough edit on was with the comet and the moon just barely above the horizon. Now that I know that I've probably captured Mars and Uranus in one of the earlier shots, I'll have to re-think my preliminary culling....

Cheers,

My recent post was heavily processed in Photoshop to bring out more comet and to emphasize the planets.  I was so focused earlier on trying to bring out the comet that I forgot planets were in there too.

I appreciate the comment although I didn't post any photo in this thread. Unless I am misunderstanding. Keep em coming, I'm going to take a look to the west tonight and see if I can spot anything.

aparis99, I like your star trail picture...especially the way the blue-ish stars are well distinguished.  However those are likely meteors in your picture, and definitely are not the comet.  The comet will only be visible via much shorter exposure, as shown by those who posted shots.

One thing that is interesting to me, is how a lot of people assume the streaks they get in longer exposure pictures, are meteors...when very often, they are satellites (or in more obvious cases, airplanes). 

The easiest way to tell, is if your exposure is longer than several minutes, an airplane or satellite's trail will be visible across the entire vield of view, where a meteor's will be shorter (and usually brighter at one end...sometimes with a curve).  It also can show some squiggles to its line if it tumbles a bit.
