Comet 2015 WZ Panstarrs inordinately faint! - July 1st

Recommended Posts

No bright comets around at the moment but a few faint one out there and went for one inordinately faint in Panstarrs WZ 2015 at supposed mag 12 but my guess it's much fainter at ~mag14/15.

The comet is high in the evening sky in Hercules near globular M92.  Here is negative form for clarity are two shots 2min apart showing the comet's motion SW in the interval.  Used my 30cm f/3.6 SCT SX Lodestar mono camera in 30s exp and 60s exp inset. Hope its of interest !
