Classical, but still very nice shot !



I was just wondering how the dithering can be activated without guiding with such configuration...I don't see how, but might be interesting...

Here is a nice classical comet situated well for imaging in Pegasus. It's moving quite rapidly right now, allowing only about 60 sec exposure before the comet drifts appreciably.



Shot last night with 7" F9 refractor unguided on 1600 mount, SBIG ST11K camera. Total exposure approximately 30 minutes at 1 minute intervals, medium combined.

Let's roll back two more days and just when 168P experienced an

outburst:

please give the animation a few seconds to load.



This evening I also caught 260P/McNaught .... with results to follow

tomorrow.
