Comet Lemmon march 5.

Hi,

This is a single 6 minute sub at iso 800 through the 8" astrograph.
I guided on comet with PHD, so the stars are trailed.
Nice group of faint galaxies upper left.

Cheers,

Justin.

Can't remember any other comet with such a changable tail. There's been two disconnections now and maybe more to come.

To tell the truth, don't Know what the PHD means. Anyway it's the guide software for the orion camera on my 50mm guide scope, called PHD guide.

Cheers,

Justin.
