Twilight had begun as we made our way in the dim light to a little cove near the Denver Church Picnic Area. In the distance I could see just a hint of the sunset but the sky above appeared dark. I got the camera setup and looked for the comet but could see nothing. I thought perhaps I was too close to the forest. I took a test shot with the metered settings but it was far too dark. I upped my settings to get the longest exposure I could without having to get out my remote and took another shot. There it was! The comet showed up just off frame. I made a few adjustments and zoomed out slightly. I still could not see the comet so I took another shot. Another adjustment and I had it lined up the way I wanted. I took several more shots but it was still really faint in the image so I knew we had to wait a bit longer for the light to leave. The shots that night were awesome.

Then, days later, while trying to stack some shots I had taken specifically for staking it occurred to me. What if I stacked the sunset shots? There was a considerable amount of drift due to the 30 second shots for stacking but with some tweaking and a bit of masking, this is the end result of 4 images stacked and aligned. In single shots the sky was nearly black but when stacked the red started to show so rather than try to get rid of it, I went with it and was very pleased with the end result.

Never throw away a shot!!!
