Still More Readers Photos

Here are a selection of the readers images that I have been promising for a while. Remember, copyright remians with these folks, so if you want to publish them in a glossy magazine, you have to ask their permission first. Also, my sister lin law will be camped out in the office for the next few days, so posting frequency will drop.

Anyway, the first of these beautiful images is from Geoff Sims again. This was taken in Sydney on Jan 22nd (sorry for taking so long to post this Geoff). I've got more from him to post later. As always, click on the image to enlarge it. Words fail me in describing this image.

This image was taken by Andrea Deegan somewhere between 9 pm and 9.30 pm , on the 24 January, looking across Oyster Harbour, toward the town site of Albany. It was taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30 , a 60 second exposure, on a tripod.

You can see the striations in the tail, and the ripples in the water make a beautiful composition.

This image was taken by Steven Bollipo from Launceston, Tasmania around 9:40 pm on Jan 25. I like the way the tail projects up into the clouds.

This image is from Phill Williams of South Australia. The photos were taken at Mt Barker summit on Wednesday night (Jan 24) using a Canon 10D with a Sigma 28-200 lens. This image was a 30second exposure. Beautiful detail in the tail, with an interesting foreground.

I have more images from these folks, and will post them later.


Ian, I see that an image of McNaught taken from Adelaide has made it onto the BBC news website.
Cool! That's Michael Mattiazzo, fellow South Australaia and Sk&Space comet editor! That picture is taken about 5 beaches down from me. Thanks for the link.
