Comet Lovejoy and M31

Went out to Lake Henshaw Friday night and got a few quick pics of Comet Lovejoy approaching M31 before the moon came up.

Took this a couple months ago during my trip to the White Moutains, an amazing grey zone site at 8,400 feet. Used a rental 6D during the trip which convinced me to buy one and I couldn’t be more pleased with its performance.
