Comet C/2006 P1 - Telescope View

Post by mfortsm » Sat Jan 13, 2007 2:21 pm

From 1/8/2007 this shows the comet with a 5" refractor and an astronomical ccd. This was shot through RGB and L filters. Gradients with the setting Sun to the lower left were big but the color is as it was imaged. The telescope was orented in a N/S giving the comet the level look behind a distant tree.
