Comet C2019 Y4 ATLAS


Scope:TMB 80mm APO Refractor at f/4.8
Camera:ZWO ASI 1600MM Pro
Mount:Losmandy G11 – Gemini Series III GoTo
Exposure:60 x 30 second subs
Processing: Processed using Pixinsight Comet alignment process just for the Comet and then overlaid this on a separately stacked background so I could keep the stars.This is a fairly tight crop of the original frame.
Other CommentsJust a quick hop over to see if I could pick up comet C2019 Y4 ATLAS. Managed to take 60 x 30sec lights. I kept the subs short as I didn’t want the Comet or the stars to smear when it came to processing.
