Comet Tuttle, 2008
haven't had much in the way of clear sky since Comet Tuttle became
accessible to my modest instrumentation. On the night of December 23rd,
2007 I got about 30 minutes of (somewhat) clear sky
and shot the images below. First, is simply a straight on prime focus image thru the Orion 120mm F/5.0. with the Canon 40D.The
next clear night found me shooting through sucker holes.
December 26th, 2007 and I arranged the camera to get M31 in the same
field. See Tuttle, upper left and M31 lower right.
I used the 75-300
kit lens that came with my Canon 30D for this image.
That done, I moved the camera to get Comet Holmes in the image. While doing so, it clouded up and hasn't been clear since.
