Comet ZTF with Samyang 135mm Mono !!

Recommended Posts

How rude of the comet to gain peak brightness when I am collecting mono narrow-band data on the Spaghetti nebula.  Could it not have had a 50,000+1/2 year orbit !!??...... and it rises above the house at 3am.  Oh well.

So, without changing my rig set up I thought I would give it a blast.   My mono camera is an Atik 414ex and so it cuts down the field of view a bit, but still wide enough to get that wiggly tail.

Three attempts presented here.

60 second Luminence exposures ( 12x60 ), one on the Coma, one on the tail and then 'mosaic-ed'.  Stacked in APP

LRGB..... rapid blast 60-secs each. Combined in APP.

Lum GIF to show movement across the sky.

Hope the GIF works.....
