Telescopic comet Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto - 21.11.2018 at 06.15 Helsinki Observation number 79373

Visibility Unclassified

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I woke up by chance and noticed that the sky was clear.

I took a picture from my own yard on a fixed tripod with a focal length of about 50 mm F1.8 ISO 2000, 37x4s. There was a light pollution filter in front.

And I got it out of there. I estimate from image to star that it is about mag 9, although it should be noted that this filter can distort it, for example, in visual terms.

Came to the bottom of the image, which is why in the crop image the bright stars are scattered almost vertically.
