Sigma 40mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art and Comet 46p / Wirtanen
We sent Sigma Ambassador Jack Fusco one of the first samples of the 40mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens that arrived here in the US, and he quickly put it to great use, capturing this incredible shot of Comet 46P / Wirtanen, along with his girlfriend, Rachel, and their dog, Kona, in the Anse Borrego Desert State Park in Southern California.
“All it took was one night of shooting and I was sold on this lens. Holy cow is this thing tack sharp from edge to edge. It’s early still, but this is already one of the most impressive lenses I’ve used to date.”
Head on over to Jack’s blog to get the full behind the scenes details and for great tips on how to capture this comet yourself!

Jack Fusco is a landscape astrophotographer based out of Pennsylvania. What began as a way purely to document his travels as a touring musician, photography has become his main form of creative expression. On his often sleepless journey, he strives to share the wonder of the night sky with as many people as possible. Whether chasing the Milky Way along coastlines or capturing the Northern lights in unforgiving remote locations, you're sure to find him coffee in hand, smiling up at the stars. Many of Jack's images are often planned days, weeks, or even months in advance while waiting for weather and celestial objects to align. The resulting work shows a true and complete dedication to his craft. His work has been featured by National Geographic, LA Times, NASA APOD, BBC, Forbes and many more.
