EquipmentStellarvue 80ED on Astrotrac with Starlight Xpress M25c and Lumicon Deep Sky filter. 1920s, 23 images. Comet-focused layered over background-focused image.
DescriptionChallenging image since Comet McNaught C/2009 R1 is barely above the horizon while at 52N, the Sun is barely under. Had to take this from an attic window to see low enough, and so 80mm was the largest scope I could use.
