Orion's Belt is out of the frame in the shots above, but the constellation's in this shot which was taken one minute later. The comet appears as three dots due to a longer exposure. The photos above are at 1/10 second; this one is a 1.3 second exposure. The familiar constellation Taurus is also in the shot. The bull's "horns" are the "V" shape above and to the right of the comet.
