. G'day Dennis

. I thought you might be interested that one of our club members managed to image 2I/borisov with a 6 inch refractor, using about 5 minute integrate time with a cooled ZWO mono camera, and a good dose of smoke.
. It will probably appear on our club website shortly. We are contemplating registering our images on the Comet Observation Database COB, because there are no officially recorded images from the southern hemisphere, and we would like to represent Aussie amateurs.
. We could also provide assistance to iceinspace members on how to find, and image the comet with almost any telescope setup. The comet is about mag 15 or so at the moment probably fading to mag 20 in about twelve months and wont be returning any time soon, and remember it is the first interstellar comet ever observed.
