Comet C/2014 E2 (Jacques) taken by Lorenzo Comolli and reprocessed by me.
Canon 60D applied to a Pentax 75 on Mzero mount, guide on the stars with a Lacerta Mgen.
Due to the fast motion of the comet (almost 20"/min), to minimize the blur of the false nucleus, only 2 minutes shots were possible.

individual images were then processed​​ in two different ways (aligned on the stars and aligned on the comet) and superposed to show the comet still among the stars.

Thanks to Lorenzo for giving me his shots

Cometa C/2014 E2 (Jacques) ripresa daLorenzo Comolli e rielaborata da me.
Riprese con una Canon 60D applicata ad un Pentax 75 su montatura Mzero.
Guida sulle stelle con Lacerta Mgen.
A causa del rapido movimento della cometa (quasi 20"/min) sono stati possibili scatti di soli 2 minuti per minimizzare il mosso del falso nucleo.

le singole immagini sono poi state composte in due modi diversi (allineate sulle stelle e allineate sulla cometa) e sovrapposte in modo da far apparire la cometa ferma tra le stelle.

Un GRAZIE a Lorenzo per avermi concesso i suoi scatti
