And now I've discovered that Machholz has 2 h's and not one so I shall spend even more time with that too!

James,

Lovely images there James. I also got an image of the comet on that clear night (at 23:11 to 23:15). It is a wider shot taken with the 300d's standard lens at 55mm focal length, f5.6 and three 30 second ISO1600 images stacked. I did not find the exact time of your images but from the position relative to the nearby stars it must have been around the same time.

However my tracking platform is not yet optimized of aligned and my sky in Tralee is by no means dark, but it places the comet and the two bright stars in your image in a wider field of view for perspective.

You can see the image in from a link in the Gallery page of Kerry Astronomy Club's webpage

Regards,

Michael Scully, KAC/ SAC

Thanks for the link to your photo Michael. Good definition for a 55mm shot.

Mine was taken 1 hour later at 00:15 on the 3rd.

I'll have to visit your crew on the other side of the world one of these days. For the time being I shall lock myself indoors and weather the 70mph beating I'm going to get for the next week or so.
