Binocular comet Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto - 16.11.2018 at 08.00 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 79205

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

A rare night in Spain when the whole night was clear.
Yes, there has indeed been volatile weather in Spain for some time.

Second is the image alone luminance image (4 x 2 min with exposure) from the previous night.

The double tail is still visible, but the time-narrow time window is (about half an hour) that the comet rises so that the walls of the observatory are not an obstacle to the dawn of the morning.
