Comets Lemmon and PanSTARRS

Post #1by abramson » 21.04.2013, 19:15

I hope everybody caught at least a bit of comet PanSTARRS last month. For those of you that haven't, let me tell you that it was a treat, and let me share a few pictures I shot. Additionaly, from my latitudes we could see also another bright comet at the same time, which was amazing. Comet Lemmon was not as impressive visually, but it showed nicely in binoculars and photographs.

So, here you are:

I was walking outside after sunset, took with me a binocular and went up to a small mountain we have near the house. I went to the top, but the weather refused me to see the comet Panstarrs. The comet was behind all those clouds you see on the 2nd picture.


I got the Moon on the photos, but I wanted so badly see that comet. The rest of the days, there were cloudy :(

Why the picture is showing blurred and promptly showing bad output. But A for your effort. I can say, this is something worth sharing. Keep up the good work.
