Another Comet 41P! - 700D and nifty fifty

Recommended Posts

Here's my first attempt at comet imaging, Comet 41P Tuttle in the bowl of Ursa Major.

Shot with a Canon 700d and 50mm f/1.8 (set to f/2.8) on a star adventurer.  Originally intended to shoot with a 135mm Takumar but it was too windy for that so went with the 50mm instead.

30x60 sec lights ISO 1600

no darks, 20 flats and 20 bias.58d95ea0baaa4_Comet41P-comet_02.thumb.jpg.f60cd73830c7b023a1a68e4a91254183.jpg

Stacked in DSS and post proc in photoshop.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice shot. Well done! :) Been looking for this visually and not seen it, n ow I know why as it is very small with hardly any coma, and definitely no tail.

Good composition and impression, precisely the spot where I got to observe this on Saturday night.

The lens has done really well wide open great capture. As you took bias files you should read the post I did a few days ago with example of using a matter bias as a dark and a master dark flat.
