Comet PanSTARRS C/2011 L4 Above Austrian Alps

My second try. After one week of nothing to see but clouds here in Austria/Carinthia, the first day with nice weather conditions. Been there one week ago too at the "Star Balcony" above Döbriach on the east-side of Lake Millstatt, but nothing to see. Sky wasn't that clear during the day but evening got better so I decided to go up there again right before sunset. Waited for an hour and didn't expect to finally get a good shot as it really wasn't visible by eye and it got darker. Zoomed in on the display and finally there it was, lovely PanSTARRS :)
