Hi,

I and my girlfriend are now drawing plans to catch the comet C/2019 Y4 Atlas on photo. It's just a few weeks until it reach it's maxima for us living in the Northern hemisphere. We belive there are a lot of others that plan to do the same. We use my travel mount Star Adventurer and two cameras with telephoto lenses, a bit overloaded but easy to bring to a dark place.

I have updated my comet page with examples that belong to this comet. Maybe could be interesting or of some help for you ? UK isn't far away from Sweden and the circumstances not to different from ours in Sweden.

I have also this comet related page that I wrote long time ago:

We wish all of you a clear sky and that you get nice photos of the comet !

Lars and Gunilla

Sad to read that the comet Atlas was broken apart. But now there is a new comet, Swan. Maybe better luck this time. I have made some sky charts over the area with help of CdC. The place is Sweden.

Yes it will stay very low, but it will be back in August if I understand it correct.

      Finally I processed the Comet Neowise captured from Bangalore.
      Simple Set-up:
      Canon80D, Sigma 70-300 DG APOII @100mm F/4.
      ISO2000, 50x5s
      Stacked in Deep Sky Stacker
      Processed in Pixinsight.
      Lots of noise as I wanted to pull out both tails

      Taken from our back garden at about midnight Friday 17/Saturday 18.
      EQUIPMENT:  Canon 1100D modified by Juan Fierros at Cheap Astrophotography, Canon 70-210mm f4 EF lens @ 140mm, Hoya HMC UV(c) filter, CLS EOS clip-in filter, Static tripod (Slick88).
      11 x 4" frames manually stacked in PS CS4 using a new Exclusion layer for each stacked frame. Then levels; curves; Exposure; Filter - HLVG; Filter - Gaussian Blur; Hue/Saturation;  Colour Balance; Channel Mixer, to name but a few!
      I had to do a manual stack as DSS didn't seem to be able to recognise the stars, reporting back that only one frame would be stacked?

      Hi all,

      Many thanks!

      Hi folks,
      Do you do long or short exposure to take a picture of the comet?
      Plesse advise what I should set my Cannon EOS to (its an ancient camera)
      I will connect to my celstron SCT 9.5” or is that too much magnification?
      many thanks!

      Hi everyone,
      it has been a long time since I posted anything here. Does any one know the best way to connect a digital camera to a Zeiss Telementor 2. I have this great telescope and a great camera but I really need some guidance with how to connect the two together.
      All help and advice gratefully accepted.
      THANKS
