EquipmentCanon T2i, Orion ST120, Orion VersaGo III mount.
DescriptionComet Panstarrs with surrounding stars identified. ISO 800, 1 sec. X 20 exposures, lens was an Orion ST120 f/5 achromat refractor, 600 mm focal length. Mount was an alt-azimuth. Twenty images were stacked, aligned and field rotation corrected, and color balance adjusted in Nebulosity 2.5; Black/white levels and balance adjusted in PhotoShop Elements 10, as well as star ID tags added. I determined the stars by using TheSkyX to find the matching star pattern after determining the approximate location via a location chart I found on the web.

DescriptionHere finally (weather conditions were really bad) my first attempt of capture PanStarrs comet; Me and my friend Antonio Lazzara we planned several yimes, and this time we have success from my home in Palermo city (Sicily); the comet seems to be lower in lightness, I haven't had the chance to compare its brightness with nearby stars so I estimate an integrated magnitude of about 3 but the twilight still not allowed to see it clearly with the naked eye, while a 8x40 binobular showed it in all its beauty and my little 150-F/4 newton showed a very bright nucleus with a dust tail extended about 1,5 - 2 degrees (my exstimation).
