M3 and Comet Catalina

Roger Samworth

14/1/2016

 

Couldn't sleep in the early hours again, so went hunting for Comet Catalina, (through a downstairs window this time!)

First go looked promising, but when I processed it  there was a bit of head-scratching. "This ain't no comet," I thought! - It wasn't, it was M3, a globular cluster nearby!

Back to the telescope - - 

Having found the comet, this time, you can see it on the attached images, the second one processed to bring out the tails.
