My First Telescopic Image of Comet C/2015 ER61

(Before It's News)


C/2015 ER16 imaged through iTelescope T13 on the morning of 8 April at 4:50 AEST. Stack of 10×60 second colour images (Bin 2) stacked in ImageJ and MEDIAN Z-projection used (click to embiggen).

Weather at the SSO finally cleared so I was able to get this image with the iTelescope T13 remote telescope.

The head is overexposed to show the tail more clearly. While not as impressive at this image (my image is rotated at 90's to this one, and is a much narrower field of view), it isn't too bad at all.
