Binocular comet Iwamoto - 24.2.2019 at 20.15 Helsinki Observation number 81422

Visibility Unclassified

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

It was only the last time I tried to describe this when it had been cloudy or almost a full moon in the sky. Of course, there was a lot of light pollution even now, so I didn't see the object with 20x80 binoculars. A light pollution filter was used during shooting. Taken on a fixed stand 177x3.2s.

I was moving at that time. And of course you could stack even shorter pieces.
