The comet is a difficult object, needing a clear W horizon. Last night the clouds were sitting over the Moon and/or comet, but eventually, after 7pm, both objects appeared through the gaps and I nabbed a few shots.
A 2s exposure is attached.
How do we add pics to a reply on this forum? It has added 'img' tags to my message but I can't paste an image. I can't find any help on this under Help.
Hi, I've checked the settings and I don't think I've switched anything off. I've always thought that the images had to be on a server somewhere and didn't even know there was the attach function you mention. Is this what you've used before for you pictures? I will go and have another check.
The skies cleared here for about 20 mins total and I managed to get another look. It's definitely getting higher and looks a touch brighter in clearer air.
Hi, My latest image taken on 29/3/13 at 20.57UT, 10x30 secs.
Tail fans out over 100 degrees and has three distinct components. (A bit easier to see in a grayscale and stretched image though) There might also be a jet right at the tip of the coma. Need to try and get some more images to confirm this.
