Two comets.
First - Comet 41P Tuttle-Giabcoboni-Kresak
Second - Comet 2015 V2 Johnson
Each approx 25 x 120s through Megrez 90 with 0.8xFR and 460 EX CCD camera. Taken in the early hours of 27 April 2017

These are my first images of the year. :happy: This due to an interest I have developed into variable stars (more detail to be posted soon).



Megrez 90, NEQ6, Atik 460EX M with Astrodon filters, DMK21 in finder guider, SkyShed POD. Celestron 9.25 for visual.

Nice 1, Dave :clap:

Looking forward to your variable star work.....  I looked at this quite a few years ago.... it can be quite interesting & rewarding doing actual science!
