Comet 46P/Wirtanen 12 December 2018

Recommended Posts

Stack of 90 minutes of 2 minute subs, during which the comet crossed a third of the vertical field of view! This helped DSS do an excellent job of separate star and comet stacking, although there was a bit of a pale patch in the star image I had to remove. 130P-DS on HEQ5 with Canon 450D (modded and cooled). Shows comet as of 21:05 UTC on 13 December 2018
