Comet Lemmon and Panstarrs 28mm widefield.

Hi,

This is the one I've been waiting for, comet Lemmon and Panstarrs on the same image.
Don't mind saying it was difficult to set this up, a narrow window before sunrise, 4 dgrees of hill in the way, limitations with the dome slit and having to mount the camera at the front of the scope at a very odd angle. Took about an hour.

Anyway to the image.

Panstarrs bottom left, Lemmon more obvious to the right near the SMC.

Canon 1100D, 18 to 55 zoom lens at 28mm f/4, piggy back on HEQ Pro 5 mount.
3 x 5 minute subs, ISO 800, stacked in DSS, processed in PS7.

Think I've imaged just about every way possible with my gear.

Cheers,

Justin.

Brilliant, another contended for Spaceweather.com Great perspective and seeing the tails pointing the same way is a good sign

Great widefield. Definetely worth the effort. Thanks for posting your image.

Comet Linear (C/2011 F1) would have been to the left of the field of view. Maybe in a few days it will be possible to pick up a trifecta.

Fantastic shot, Justin. How often do we get opportunities to image two relatively bright comets with tails at the same time, let alone in the same field of view? This really is unique.

No images yet Justin, still ironing out some bugs and was a little busy last night so couldn't setup. Good news is, bugs are almost ironed out, but because it's hot during the day, I am limited on the amount of time I spend out in the shed...
