November 6-7, 2021 Comet run

Posted by dbock1 on November 8, 2021 at 9:35 AM

The night of November 6th, I setup a run to acquire data of 6 different comets throughout the night. This required staggering the run so that the objects were up far enough to move to the next one during the night.

The comet list was as follows but not necessarily in this order


  • Comet 4P (FAYE)
  • Comet 29P Schwassmann-Wachmann
  • Comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko
  • Comet C-2021 A1 (Leonard)
  • Comet L3 (ATLAS)
  • Comet_132P_Helin_Roman_Alu
I took 5 minute subs on each object, ranging from 12 to 24 frames
