Telescopic comet Iwamoto - 21.2.2019 at 19.35 - 21.2.2019 at 20.30 Mäntsälä, Ohkola Observation number 81342

Visibility II / V

Teppo Laitinen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

Without clearing up, I was able to take my first telescope image from 2019 and this comet was conveniently available. The tail was not visible this time, but when shooting it noticed how fast it was moving.

Edit. I added a video showing the movement for 50min. during.
