Description

C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy captured on the evening of December 29. Last object of 2014 and I didn't want to lose the conjunction between Comet and globular cluster M79. With the Moon at 55% and the FOV at 18° I couldn't expose for more than 45 seconds, so I set the ISO to 400 to have less noise and I launched the program. 90x45 sec ISO 400 with Canon 450D and Tecnosky 80/480.

C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy ripresa la sera del 29 dicembre. Ultimo oggetto del 2014 e non volevo perdere la congiunzione tra cometa e ammasso globulare M79. Con la luna al 55% e il campo inquadrato a 18° non potevo esporre per più di 45 secondi, così ho impostato gli ISO a 400 per avere meno rumore e ho lanciato il programma. Sono in totale 90x45 sec 400 ISO con Canon 450D e Tecnosky 80/480 con spianatore/riduttore da 0,8x.
