Hello all,

 

Has anybody tried to image the comet?

 

This is the latest image I´ve taken under very tricky conditions - full moon, cirrus clouds, codiacal light, twilight :_)

 

ASA DDM60PRO, ASA 8" f 3.6, FLI PL 16070

 

best regards

 

Gerald

I tried, but from my observatory there is a neighbour's tree in the way. I got this with a DSLR and telephoto lens from my loft window this morning.

Rather poor, but at least I got it.

The bright star to the right is Spica, and Mercury is near the horizon.

I hope when (if) it has gone round the Sun it will be better placed.

Hi Gerald,

That is truly an amazing picture... Chapeau!

What subs did you take if I may ask? And one shorter L-sub for the stars?

I am amazed by the round stars with such a high speed object.

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

BR, Waldemar
