Four Comets

I also had a look at a few comets recently but missed out on 4P. I did have a look at 19P Borrelly as well but I was lucky to get anything becasue it was scraping the rooftops from my location. Like you, Mike, I looked at 29P and noted that it was quite tricky to see. This contrasts with observations we made in early October when it was in outburst. I also looked at 104P Kowal.

I had a look at 2019 L3 with LRGB but it did not really add anything. No obvious nice colour from the C2 Swan band. I need to repeat this on a comet that it nearer the sun some time.

Good to have a chance to look at anything in the sky other than clouds!

Bill, glad you got a view of something. Comet 104P - new one to me. A bit low down for my setup, as with 19P so good to add them into this section - thanks. Colour - uhmmmm - worth a try but.......
