Hi all

Click on the above link to see a nice animation of the comet supplied by an observer on the MPML. Whats interesting to me is that it shows an ion tail AND dust tail..something i suspected visualy but declined to mention at the time. What do you think of the animation?

coruscations attending the whole length of the luminosity, giving to the phenomena the aspect of a wrathful messenger, and not that of a tranquil body pursuing a harmless course..comet of 1680

Hi Dave

If you havent read my other thread on this comet i hinted that maybe you could capture an animation of Pojmanski or 73P now below Arcturus..it would be the first in Ireland again! :D

Sorry Martin - I missed that one!

Crikey - yet another challenge from you! Haven't let you down yet but... I recently resited the 1200 (just a few meters) so I need to polar align again (doh!) so that'll take some time. And added to that, weatehr reports for the next week are woeful.

Funnilly enough, I nearly imaged a comet on Friday night but I was too wasted on writing MPC reports :cry:

If I get J65 upa and running sharpish and we get the weather, I'll give it a lash. Fair enough? :wink:

Cheers

Dave
