Binocular comet Iwamoto - 10.3.2019 at 20.04 - 10.3.2019 at 20.35 Kangasala, Sahalahti Observation number 81657

Visibility III / V

The sky cleared unexpectedly and I was able to photograph Iwamoto on a tracking stand. The comet is very dim, although I exposed the images for a long time and stacked the images. The green color still stood out clearly.
Next to the bright star is the Driver ι Aurigae.
