One of the things I'm most excited about the camera is the better ability to take pictures at night or in low light. So to test it out last week, I headed over to John's house to borrow a 200 mm lens and try to find a comet. The comet Lovejoy is making an appearance this month, and is nearly bright enough to be seen by the naked eye (it helped to have a camera). We stood out in the freezing temperatures and found the comet, about 44 million miles away (it's the green dot).
It was impressive to get a picture of, but I admit I would have been more impressed if there was something like a Death Star up there. Or in the very least, a Millennium Falcon.
Mext, we swung the camera around and got a few pictures of the Moon (which was much easier to find than the comet).
