PANSTARRS – Close to M31 – 2nd April 2013

by on , under Astronomy Blog

Well, a clear night beckoned, so I just had to pack up the kits and take it over to work which has a fantastic western horizon.

Set the Astrotrac up with my Nikon with my 80mm refractor, aiming to get the comet in the same field as the galaxy.

All set up ready and waiting for the sky to darken.

Once the sky darkened enough I tried to get the objects in the field of the 80mm refractor, but it was too small a field of view. Luckily I bought my 120 – 400mm Sigma lens with me.

I set that up instead, and took quite a while setting things up. But once I got it in my sights, there was no stopping me.
