Telescopic comet ATLAS - 14.4.2020 at 23.27 - 15.4.2020 at 00.16 Järvenpää Observation number 89941

Visibility III / V


Atlas of a comet photographed on 14.04.2020.

The resolution of a 102mm tube is not quite enough to separate the disintegration of the core, even if with a good imagination you could see it in the picture.

44x60s, L, TS 102mm F7, Atik460Ex

Edit: I tried that drizzle suggested by Tapio and attached a third picture of it as an invert, enlarging the core and adjusting the curve. The main piece will probably stand out more clearly, and when you compare, for example, Rauno's sharp image, here you can see some sort of the same shape in the stern, but as a blunder.
