Description

On October 23rd, 2012, Comet 168P/Hergenrother and Comet C/2012 J1 (Catalina) had an encounter in Pegasus. I shot the get together with a Meade SN-6 scope and a modified Canon T3. I did star-freeze processing with the data. Since there were two comets, I had to create a stack aligned for each comet for a total of three separate stacks. These were combined in PS as layers with lighten blending.
