Comet C/2001 Q4 (NEAT)
Comet C/2001 Q4 (NEAT) is a fairly dim comet (about magnitude 4 as of the date this image was taken) with a short tail. This image was taken with the comet low just above the treetops. The camera was piggybacked on my polar-aligned LX-200. Unfortunately, the polar alignment was very poor, hence the trailing of the stars and comet in this image.
There is a thin cloud to the upper left of the comet.
