Telescopic comet Catalina - 12.3.2016 at 20.58 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 52155

Visibility II / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

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

Pictures taken with a Canon EOS 6 camera with a 135mm F3.5 lens on a fixed tripod. Catalina 17x4 s, ISO 25600.

Image times will focus on 8:58 p.m.

Panstarrs seemed brighter. There is a few dim stars in the Catalina image that are roughly in line with the tail, interfering with its correct perception.

Pictured is the north at the top left.
