C2023 A3 Suchinshan-ATLAS movement 11-12/06/2024

Comet C2023 A3 Suchinshan-ATLAS movement from 11/06/2024 to 12/06/2024.
Images were taken with a Dwarf II.
The nightly images were each 100 exposures at 15 seconds.
The two nightly images were then stacked in DeepSkyStacker.
The stacked image was then cropped.
No other processing was done.
The field of view is approximately 2.5 degrees.

Thanks for posting the image Brendon, showing the movement 24 hrs. Am a little surprised that there was that much in the time period considering its distance from us. Looking forward to Sept/Oct when, hopefully, it will put on a show for us. Not expecting another McNaught like show but something similar would be worth the price of admission.

Nice one Brendan, an interesting comparison between its position over 2 nights. The surprise is that you got 2 clear nights in a row I had a go at capturing this comet last night. It was quite close to a waxing Gibbous moon and on top of that I live under a Bortle 6 sky. I relied on the GOTO of the Heq5 to find it, no chance with even binoculars under those conditions. It's looking like it could be a worthy target to chase over the next few months. I'm not waiting until it's supposed to be at it's brightest, like I did with Pons-Brooks, which will put it right in the glare of the sun. It's quite high in the sky now, which for me is more important than being brighter closer to the horizon in all the mist, sunglare and smog. My shot was a stack of 30 x 6 secs @ 3200iso using a Canon 550d on a 6inch f5 newtonian.

Good show Brendan an interesting approach from the other side of Sol, Perihelion in late Sept @ 0.38 AU from the sun, then 0.5 AU from Earth in mid Oct.
Might catch a couple o shots over the coming weeks for the record of approach also..

Good Catch also Michael considering the proximity to Lunar glow,, that tail looks to have a faint streamer going all way to that brighter star behind it
