Hello 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.
Description
Hello 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.
