    Default 46P/ Wirtanen



    Finally got out again to try my luck at seeing comet Wirtanen 11-17-18 I wasn't sure I would be able to get a capture as the moon was waxing at 68 percent illumination but was surprised to be able to get this capture.


    Scope WOGT81 with reducer
    Camera QHY168C
    20x120 second exposures



    Thanks for looking

    Nice capture, especially with the moon looming large in the sky. The color of the coma is impressive.
