More of Comet Panstarrs

by , under Comets & Meteors

As time goes by and Comet Panstarrs flies deeper into the solar system, while it grows dimmer, its view-ability through a telescope is becoming increasingly better. Each day it rises higher in the morning sky and we have a few more minutes of visibility and time to image. I stepped up my exposure length this session, imaging each channel for 4 minutes. I was able to loop over these 5 times for LRGB and acquire 20 minutes of each channel. Turned out pretty good.
