Comet C/2011 L4 PanSTARRS Mosaic 2 June 2012
The tail of comet PanSTARRS stretches over 5 degrees across the sky, pointing to Polaris. This is my second mosaic of this marvellous comet, but my previous one was too short and light contaminated. After bouts of bad weather and an embarrassing night where I couldn't work out which way the comets tail was pointing (and thus taking lots of images of empty sky), I finally got this beauty.
