Saddle Up for Comet Lulin

If you haven't done so already, you need to make a point of looking for Comet Lulin. This is now visible in binoculars and quite possibly the naked eye in some parts. Astro-imagers have taken a lot of nice snaps of this green little visitor to our neck of the woods. It reaches its brightest around February 24th, getting to about magnitude 5.

I have not had a chance to look at it yet due to a combination of bad skies, university and family commitments. I will try and image it one night this weekend...

In the meantime, check out the links below for more information!
