    Default Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) - February 12th 2019 - WIP



    Hi AF members,
    Just managed to capture - Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) this morning, between the clouds in the pre-dawn sky. This is a basic process from 23 images of 75 sec exposure at ISO 400 (on Vixen Polarie tracker), 85 mm Samyang F1.4 lens at F1.4, camera: Canon 100D with a Skytech CLS clip on filter). Processed in Sequator (from jpgs). I will be working on this over the coming weeks using the RAW files. Its in Leo, you can see a faint green spludge which is the Comet. It moves quickly - between frames you can see the motion, one of the fastest moving comets I have seen.

    Yes, a bit faint. I will go into DSS and try and stack for the comets, and use curves and masking, layers even to bring out the comet. Maybe try again in a few days when clear skies and try and image through my telescope.

    Thanks Rhoda. It was quite a rush job, an hour before dawn, and it was turning down into the horizon. I hope to get a comet at close magnification with the tail, using DSS and working with layers.
