Comet Hartley 2 passing NGC 457 the Owl Cluster

Recommended Posts

Managed to get another set of 20 frames of Comet Hartley 2 close to the Owl cluster before the clouds rolled in.

200mm lens F3.2 on the Astrotrac 60 sec @ 3200 iso, I've also attached a 1:1 animated Gif of each frame

to show the comets movement over the 20 minutes.

Visually the comet was fainter than I expected, just glimpsed it in 10x70 bino's
