Telescopic comet Borisov - 16.10.2019 at 08.00 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 86124

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

In the morning, I was able to take a picture of the comet even though the conditions were poor - a cloud cloud and almost a full moon.

The second is an animation showing the movement of a comet during 2x5 minutes of exposure.

The comet was about 404.4 million kilometers away at the time of filming.

I made an astrometric measurement:
RA 09 54 26
DEC +16 22 38

Brightness is an estimate compared to the reference star.

The brightest galaxy in the image is NGC 3041.
