Comet Lovejoy Confirmation?

Tube Screamer

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Here's one that's likely to be laughed off the forum by the astrophotography guys, but I'm just looking for a bit of confirmation really to make sure that I was in fact looking at the correct object last night.

This image was taken with no other equipment than my Skywatcher Heritage 130p Dob and a compact camera stuck straight up to (handheld) the stock 25mm eyepiece.


I was just hoping that someone could hopefully confirm that I was indeed looking at the correct object.  I have looked at some other, far better, images of the comet online and it seems that the two faint stars to the upper left of the 'comet' on my image could be a giveaway that this was actually Lovejoy I was observing last night?

Thanks for taking a look
