Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 148 frame animation 10-01-2014

Recommended Posts

Chipping Norton amateur astronomy group (CNAAG) had a good turnout last night on a windswept disused airfield near the town. We all huddled together in the lee of a container which serves as the model flying clubs store to set up our mounts to view and image Comet Lovejoy, five equatorial mounts an Astrotrac and a couple of Dobs made it very snug but the comet was visible to the naked eye and easy in an 8x30 finder.
I was using my FSQ85 with an unmodded Sony A7s and managed to get 148 x 30sec unguided subs @8000iso.
Here's a link to an animation of all the frames
