Comet Machholz (C2004 Q2), Pleiades, M42, Hyades - labels Comet Machholz (C2004 Q2), Pleiades, M42, Hyades - no labels
I was out braving the cold and this was one shot. Am I correct that the comet is at the far middle right of the picture? The street lights are brutal but still thought I should try...

I took it with my Sony 717 digital @ ISO 400 f/2.5 for 30 seconds.

Thanks for looking (and inspiring),
