Comet C/2012 K1 PanSTARRS, which was discovered 2 years ago, is the 3rd comet that I’ve ever imaged and with a magnitude of around +7.8 on 15 June 2014, it’s one of the summer binocular comets to watch out for this year now. Comet C/2012 K1 PanSTARRS was located near the +4.5 magnitude star 21 Leo Minoris (bright star on lower left of comet) at imaging time and it’s high above the horizon after sunset if you’re imaging it from the Northern hemisphere. Coming mid-July, the comet will disappear from view after sunset and reappear again before sunrise in mid-September.

I’ve also managed to capture a shooting star while I was imaging the comet with the Blue filter!
