I had been hoping the skies would clear on the evening of March 12 to capture both Comet Lulin and Comet 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann in the same field of my FSQ106/STL11K setup. A bonus object in the field is the star cluster NGC2420 just above Comet Lulin. North is up in this image. Exposure time centered around March 13 2009 03:54UT. Imaged from Sierra Remote Observatories, California.
