Description

Here is Comet Catalina, taken 1/2/16. This is 30 x 30 sec and 60 x 60 sec exposures, ISO 800. I have edited and re-edited... I just can't seem to get the tail to show well. Tried different stacking methods too, mostly in DSS. I haven't tried comet stacking in PI yet. I think I need better data, longer exposure and maybe higher ISO. Taken with Orion ED80, AVX mount, Baader modified T3 Canon camera, .8x focal reducer. Enjoy!
