Telescopic comet Shoemaker-Levy - 31.3.2017 at 23.49 - 1.4.2017 at 00.18 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 62840

Visibility I / V

118P was filmed at Device Days. The comet is one of the dimmest objects we have photographed on Star Rock. It has been at its brightest last summer 2016. I did not find any observations for this year.

According to the comet, stacking was difficult, but eventually succeeded when I removed the bad image from the stack. Only the middle part of Koma was found in the picture.
