Comet C/2015 ER61 (PANSTARRS) after outburst

Recommended Posts

Delayed images, but perhaps interesting:
Great outburst in C/2015 ER61 (PANSTARRS), I think is several magnitudes brighter, and with a ionic tail showing structural details. The images wasn’t processed, only stretched at same intensity, these are two images of 120 seconds with same equipment:

The April 4th image processed, just after have an outburst wich did increase its brightness two magnitudes in oly some hours, passing from magnitude 8 to 6 and developing a long ionic tail with several trails going out of field toward west (to right).
