Image Details:

In the lower left of this image you will see the Beehive cluster M44, you will see a small green dot near the top center of the image, this is Comet, C/2023 P1. I waited as long as I could before twilight would interfere with the image so the comet was high above the horizon as possible. I used a 135mm lens set to f2.0 and an exposure of 30, Sec. at ISO 1600.
