Lovejoy emerges from the South

Our skies are graced with another comet. It is a bit difficult for us to see in the North at the moment, but will move out of the low misty southern skies in a few days. Here is my first serious attempt at getting pictures of it. I just used a 400mm lens at f/6.3 and took 40 shots of 30 second exposure on a tracking mount (Dec 29 11pm). There is a hint of a tail there and while it doesn't look much now there is more to come from this icy rock.
