Catalina with bunnies
« on: 10:10:52, 21 December, 2015 »
Hi all.
got up at 5.30 this morning to image Comet Catalina with a Canon 20da and FSQ.
Was not quite awake, lol
As you can see from the wonderful noise and dust bunnies in the image. at least its different.
2nd image tried to clean it up.
However the tail is longer than i expected, will have to have another go at this.
20 x 60 seconds exposure ISO800

Did you empty the hoover bag in that camera ?  :laugh:

Nice catch. I did think about getting up this morning but had back troubles (i.e. I couldn't get it off the mattress)
