This picture it's born as a test, but after stacking it, we thought that it was enough decorous to be posted here, just to share information about the acquisition. The barn door AR was to fast after last modding, we need to make some upgrade about. Anyway here is a CROP of our memory of this comet visit. Many thanks to Antonio Ruggeri (Realchemyst) and Antonio da Messina!
