Your Comet Pictures: C/2011 L4 (Pan-STARRS), C/2012 F6 (Lemmon), C/2012 S1 (ISON)
In anticipation of three major comets visiting over the next few months I have blown the dust off of the gear. Actually, yesterday I pulled the
primary out of my largest telescope and cleaned it.
Pan-STARRS is now visible to those of us in the northern hemisphere but it's cloudy here so while I'm waiting and hoping that it clears up I thought I
would make a thread to post images.
Run out in your sock feet and snap a pic!
I invite you all to post your pictures with me. I'm very interested in seeing how different devices and creative techniques do; whether it is a
smartphone or purpose built imaging system. It would be really great to see people's artistic touches! I would love to see some creative post
processing, interesting vantage points, and drawings/paintings too.
I will be using my little point and shoot as well as my telescopes and
It is still too cloudy for imaging Pan-STARRS (in fact after a perfectly clear day it looks like it's about to precipitate...of course) so to get the
ball rolling here is a pic of my main scope, a 13.1 inch Newt, Dob. I would love to see any rigs or gear you might be using to capture the comets this
