Comet Lovejoy from London

Recommended Posts

First clear night for 9 days but Lovejoy much higher in sky in Eridinus last night level with Rigel to east and easy 10x50 bino object.  Here's my shot from last night via DIY 10cm f/4.5 Lensless Schmidt + new SX Lodestar-Cx2 camera and SX s/w in 120s [4x30s] under a near full moon - faint tail to east

Thanks guys - change of tactics last night eg to record comet rising in east before 6PM and moonrise and before entering trees for an hour or so.  The comet now level with Orion's Belt to the east. Used piggybacked 10cm f/4.5 L-Schmidt camera + SX Lodestar-Cx2 in 90s exp [3x30s sum] with 1/2deg wide fov.  No tail recorded at this low altitude :police:
