Telescopic comet PANSTARRS - 12.3.2016 at 21.01 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 49465

Visibility II / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed two comets every few minutes at Ursa’s solar system meeting last night.

Panstarrs on C / 2014 S2.

Pictures taken with a Canon EOS 6 camera with a 135mm F3.5 lens on a fixed tripod. Panstarrs 16x6 s, ISO 25600.

Image times were concentrated on 21.01 (Panstarrs).

Panstarrs seems much brighter.

Pictured is north about to the left.

Panstarrs also became clearly visible in the images of the 28mm lens.
