Comet PANSTARRS 12th Feb Brisbane

Here's Comet PANSTARRS in the southeast this morning. 100% crop stack and a wide field. Both with EOS 600D at 200mm.

Cheers,

Tom

Wow! Looks great.

How long was the exposure? Tracked or on a tripod?

Is it visible naked eye?

Thanks Mike,
The wide field is a single exposure 10sec f/3.5 on a Vixen Polarie, processed in DPP.
The crop is about 6 minutes of 10sec exposures, same settings, stacked in Registax.

I couldn't see it with the naked eye but I didn't look too hard.

Cheers, Tom
