Owl nebula, Moon and a comet

Post by smerral »

I actually went out last night to grab the comet again. I was hampered by the Moon of course. I also captured this image of the Owl nebula. 10x300 sec subs. The scope was the Cestron C8 reduced to f. 3.7 and the camera was the Altair GPcam.


Next a mosaic of the Moon.


Finally a short video of Comet Iwamoto covering a period of around 30 minutes.
