EquipmentHello Friends, Here are a couple of images I made of Comet, Pan-STARRS on March 18, 2013. The comet is still avoiding unaided eye visibility but does shine nicely through a small telescope. A 5 inch Apochromatic refracting telescope, a Cannon 60Da camera was used for the 6 second exposures at f9 and ISO of 1600. The mount was a Losmandy G-8.
DescriptionHello Friends, An images I made of Comet, Pan-STARRS on March 18, 2013. The comet is still avoiding unaided eye visibility but does shine nicely through a small telescope. These images were made between 20:20:00 and 20:25:00 PM on March 18, 2013 through a 5 inch Apochromatic refracting telescope, a Cannon 60Da camera was used for the 6 second exposures at f9 and ISO of 1600. The mount was a Losmandy G-8. A couple of more clear nights are predicted but then clouds return and I will again miss my nightly meetings with this beautiful comet.

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.
