Comet C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS)
Last evening (March 19th) I finally managed to photograph the comet in true color. Despite numerous clouds I was able to take several 10 sec. exposures in R, G and B filters. Due to the twilight conditions and the passing clouds, extracting flat frames wasn't possible, thus some gradient resides in the image.
