Comet 21P/ Giacobini-Zinner from 2018

Recommended Posts

I took a photo that I saved to my phone of Comet 21P/ Giacobini-Zinner in 2018.

I was unsure ware to point my camera as I didn't have any astro apps, or much knowledge of the constellations.From my garden I pointed my camera and 90mm macro lens in the general direction of the comet. Luckily the ISS tracked by during a 4 second exposure on a static tripod.The second photo is a crop. Pentax K5 Tamron 90mm f2.8 ISO 10,000.

I know a little more now that I have stellarium, just the basics a few constellations and star names.

Which messier object is above the Comet?

Amazing to get an ISS photobomb as well!!

Yes very lucky to get the ISS in the field of view, particularly as I was just pointing my camera in the general direction of the comet. 😂
