Telescopic comet Iwamoto - 17.2.2019 at 20.25 Kaarina, Ravattula Observation number 81228

Visibility I / V

Matti Tainio, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I finally got to spot Iwamoto. In the previous clear evenings, work has hampered hobbies, now teased the moon. Nevertheless, something grabbed the camera cell and stacking only improved. The comet failed to align and its motion is already visible in this stack of 30 images.

In the first picture, the body of the comet. In the second and third, almost the entire image area of the 105 mm camera lens.
