    Winking Wirtanen

    Congratulations on finding and capturing comet Wirtanen. Having spent quite a few nights scanning that region of the sky recently, those stars seem very familiar to me now.
  4. excellently done, it really is shifting across the heavens at quite a pace!
  5. Finally found Wirtanen last after a couple of attempts. Could not resist a quick widefield snap with the "Nifty fifty" despite the gale that was blowing. It certainly is moving at a pace, I could see the difference in position through my 17x70's clearly within an hour. Looking forward to the next few weeks, especially showing my sister out visitor at the 1st available chance!
  6. Excellent image, I do love the single image with the visitor though....
  7. Terrific capture, especially with the meteor whizzing by!

    Comet 46P /Wirtanen

    I did have a 1st attempt last night. A mixture of cloud, car headlights and wind blowing my finder charts in to the mud/under my feet, meant it was an epic fail

    ZWO asi120mc on Coronado PST - question

    Looking at my images, most of the experimental stuff was with the Lunt50mm. I do remember cutting down the nose piece on my camera to achieve focus with the PST, I think it was ok with a Barlow as well.
