Just after midnight early in the morning of the 30th April 2017, the clouds parted over Lowestoft and I was able to image C2015 V2 (Johnson) in Hercules.  I used my 127mm refractor, field flattener and Canon 600d DSLR. The image is an amalgalm of stacked 1 minute exposures at ISOs 1600, 3200 and 6400. I just love comets.:happy7:

I saw it just as in your image next to that star! Although I could not see the colours!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your comment.  To be honest the colour intensity had more to do with my usual rather heavy handed image processing than reality. Anyway it made for a more interesting image and made the fainter areas of coma visible.  Glad you got to see it in real time.  I like all comets but I think this one is quite beautiful with or without 'Technicolor ':happy7:

Regards George
