Comet Lovejoy C/2014 Q2 – Further Processing Joys.

by on , under Astronomy Blog

I had to get up early and process my images some more.
First off is an animation showing the movement of the comet over about 40 minutes while I was imaging.
180 Mac-Newt.

Second movie shows the comets movement over about 2 hours in 80mm refractor.

Secondly, these two black and white images show the comet about 3 hours apart.
The movement of the delicate tails away from the comets coma can be clearly seen as they are further away in the lower image.

Picture saved with settings embedded.
