    Default C/2015 v2 Johnson and Fireworks galaxy



    Hi!

    I finally caught the color with QHY168C :-)
    First clear night without the moon but only 2h of darkness here... But it was enough for comet and fireworks galaxy.

    Both pictures are good. I am really impressed with your comet image. I tried comet Johnson a few days ago, but it came out terrible.
    Maybe I should try again.
    Nicely done Tomek
