Telescopic comet ATLAS - 11.4.2020 at 22.30 - 11.4.2020 at 23.50 Kangasala, Sahalahti Observation number 89892

Visibility II / V


The weather forecast promised a clear night and a back winter in the morning. I dug up the tripod and camera for Atlas. After all, a comet was found, although it had moved a bit and is still a tricky object with camera optics almost in the zenith on its head.
I used the same optics and shutter speeds as on March 30, 20. The atlas is clearly dimmed and the greenish color barely came out. I throw an estimate of 9 mag.
