Comet Lovejoy is still in the neighborhood of Orion and Eridanus, so I thought I'd try to capture it on Thursday night. Unfortunately, it is too dim to show up on my images, and it is too difficult to zoom in on its approximate location with any accuracy. But here are a couple of photos that came out pretty well during the effort.
