    Default Comet C/2013 E2 (Iwamoto) image



    This comet is well placed for viewing at the moment, near the equator and transiting late evening....
    This image is 52x2min subs, Atik 420 binned 2x2, 200mm f/4 newt, luminance only. Calibrated with flats/darks in nebulosity, image processing in StarTools and Graphic Converter.
    The mag 6 star in the field is somewhat distracting, but the comet shows up quite well....
    As it turned out the seeing was quite nice last night, binning 1x1 might have been a better option??

    Hello Lee. A very nice image of Comet Iwamoto from you. This is a nice capture of a comet that we don't hear much about lately. So, thanks for posting this nice picture, and best wishes for clear skies.

    Thanks Lee! I see it is currently listed at mag 14.9 in Sky Tools, and almost 6 degrees southeast of Uranus at the moment. Good stuff!
