C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS)
stack_32m_2.jpg
32 minute exposure (16 x 120s)
EOS 7D, ISO 6400
FL = 135mm, f/5.66
2013.05.27 04:03 UT

Imaged within a few hours of the Earth crossing the comet's orbital plane, so the antitail is very prominent. From the comet nucleus to the point where the antitail goes off the image is 4.5°.

The comet Panstarrs under Polaris

Title: The comet Panstarrs under Polaris
Object/Date: C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS) @ 2013-05-27
Tech data: Sigma 35-135 lens at 100mm. f/4 + Canon EOS 350D (4×180 sec. at ISO 1600)
Description: May 27, 2013. Concurring with the approaching of the comet C/2011 L4 PANSTARRS to Polaris (at upper center), Earth crossed the comet orbital plane. This perspective allowed to observe a long and inusual tail formed by dust particles which were left behind on this plane. In the image it can see a faint normal tail of dust of nearly 1º long toward right, and toward left, a long anti-tail of more than 6º passing near open cluster NGC 188. I have inserted a Moon image at same scale of photo as reference.
