Telescopic comet Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova - 20.3.2017 at 00.53 Pieksämäki Observation number 62028

Visibility I / V

Timo Kantola, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

In the dim moments of the night, a 300sec exposure was quickly captured. The comet poses with the 12.2mag galaxy NGC 3287. At the bottom of the image shines a 7.8 mag star HD91656


I added a picture where two galaxies are marked A and B, the picture is related to the weaving of Jorma Ryske's observation:

#pyrstö: 18+ 'PA 280 °
#pyrstö: 2 'PA 110 °
