Comet Panstarrs and M31

At the beginning of the month Comet Comet C/2011 L4 Panstarrs passed close to the Andromeda galaxy offering a rare imaging opportunity. This image was captured from Kiplingcotes, E. Yorkshire, a rural area with relatively dark skies. Canon EOS550D, Canon 80-200 zoom at 90mm f/4.5. IS0 1600, 8 x 8 sec subs. The camera was mounted on a fixed photographic tripod. It was very cold, but worth the frozen fingers.
