Comet Panstarrs and the Andromeda galaxy (M31)

A wet evening on April 6-7 made prospects poor for a morning showing of Comet Panstarrs, and indeed light clouds and even fog periodically interfered, but it could be seen a few minutes before the rising moon added interference.  The comet is at the top of the frame, right of center, and the Andromeda galaxy (M31) is the fuzzy spot at lower right.  At the bottom left is the observatory of the Orange County Astronomers.
