Binocular comet Wirtanen - 14.11.2018 at 01.00 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 79191

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

The comet did not rise very high in Spain, so a rather short exposure time had to be used.
With longer exposure times, some have gained more tails.

Toivottavasti kirkastuu vielä reippaasti. Joutuu kameraoptiikalla SkyTrackerkin aika lujille tuollaisilla valotusajoilla.

Varmaan lyhyempikin valotusaika riittää. Viimeisimmät kirkkausarviot on jomag 7 luokkaa.
