Comet 108P/Ciffreo


 2014 Nov 23

Fainter and harder to photograph than C/2014 Q3 (Borisov) but I got it. It is just a faint smudge at the centre of this image, complicated by the fact that it passed very close to 3 faint stars while I watched it. In Auriga.

SkyWatcher 254mm Newtonian, f = 1200mm, f/4.8
HEQ5 mount unguided, 51 x 64s = 54.4 minutes total exposure
