Comet Lovejoy near the Plieades

A few days ago I set up my camera with my 70-200 Canon lens on my iOptron Sky Tracker and took 418 30-second images in about 4 hours. Out of those 418 I used 98 to put together the above image. On that day, Jan 16, 2015, it was near the Plieades Star Cluster. I was pleasantly surprised to get the nebulosity that surrounds these beautiful cluster.
