Binocular comet ZTF - 27.1.2023 at 00.40 Akaa Observation number 111640

Visibility Unclassified


The comet was easily found near familiar stars. I described the comet with different variations and I think this 1.5 minute single frame was the best. The focal length was 200 mm and the camera was on the tracking device. The observation conditions were good, because of that I tried to see the comet's head with my naked eyes, but I dare not say for sure, the comet had too clear a place in the sky and the vision could have been a bit of an imagination.

Siisti. Samanlaiset ajatukset myös tuosta paljain silmin näkymisestä. Muutama kerran oli oikeassa paikassa jotakin, jota sitten ei kohta näkynytkään. Oletan olleen komeetan, mutta ihan satavarma en voinut olla.
