Comet Lemmon/SMC/Tuc47 fly-by

25 posts in this topic

Just a quick grab of 13x3min subs with a canon 60D and an 80mm Mamiya f2.8 lens at f4 on a celestron cge mount. I wasn't going to let this one get away and lucky as i was clouded out in the end.

I agree that is a fantastic image, the composition is really first class.

You have some lovely stuff down there :) All we seem to have is cloud :(

Cheers

What a fabulous photo. To get the comet plus the SMC and 47 Tucanae - brilliant.

It's really not fair. Even their clouds are Magellanic.

Excellent. I didn't realise that Tuc47 was so close to the SMC!
