Comet C/2012 F6 (Lemmon)


This comet had been spectacular as seen from the southern hemisphere. I only managed to photograph it much later.

 2013 Sep 14

Canon EOS 5D MkII, ISO 6400
254mm aperture Newtonian f/4.8 HEQ5 mount
132 x 32s on 2013 September 14 at 20:47:36-22:07:58 UT
From Rookhope 54.8N 2.1W 330m asl. Rural, almost no light pollution (3 Bortles)

This comet is now 2.6au away, in Draco. I was able to process the images properly so the stars trail past the comet.
