This morning we went to the field with 2 of my grand children, Zélie (8) close to my bino and Pibo (12) my quick newton 114/500, typical material for comet hunting. The comet sketched in the background is C/2015 E4 (Lovejoy) the original sketch was done with the bino EP : 40x and just one SWAN filter. The kids came for the 2 hours duration in the cold of this comet marathon.
