Canon EOS M100

Image Details:

Had to venture into the Observatory Garden to capture this shot. Comet Atlas is not the easiest target to find, but if you can locate the galaxy pair M81 and M82 in Ursa Major, it fits in the same binocular field of view. But even in my dark sky, I had difficulty seeing it! My camera's image sensor is much better than my old, bloodshot eyes.
I hope the rumors of Atlas' impending brilliancy are not greatly exaggerated!
