This is the arithmetic stack of 12 x 5 min exposures taken through AT6RC with non-modified Nikon D5100 at ISO 1600 guided on the comet core. Processing: IRIS and Photoshop CS2 The story: I planned to arrive at the field as early as possible but I was fooled by cloudy forecast for the early evening and came there around 9pm when the comet already started to sink into Philadelphia skyglow. It was cold... temperature between 15F and 20F plus some refreshing breeze. The comet was easy to spot as a star-like object by naked eye a few degrees below Pleiades. Later I knew from Joe that for people with better vision than mine the comet appeared as a fuzzy ball rather than a star from a relatively dark place like Coyle. I believe I saw very faint short tail through 70x11 binoculars, I do not think it was my imagination as I later checked its direction with my SkySafary app and it matched what I observed. Through 14&quot; dob the view was spectacular, very bright star-like nuclei surrounded by a cloud of glowing gas and a few faint stars showing through it added a charm to the view. It took longer than expected to make the equipment work and frame the comet at such cold weather. I could take just 12 x 5 min subs before the intensity of background due to the lights from Philadelphia became too obvious. I wish I came earlier. http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13164-c2014-q2-lovejoy-coyle-field.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13164-c2014-q2-lovejoy-coyle-field.html Mon, 16 Mar 2015 20:40:03 -0400 M63 <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13163-m63.html"><img title="M63_04-24-14_.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/M63_04-24-14_.jpg" alt="M63_04-24-14_.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Igor<br /><br />Description}: M63 04/24/14 Coyle Field, NJ 6-inch Astro-Tech AT6RC Ritchey-Chrétien astrograph with Astro-Tech field flattener, Celestron advanced VX mount, guided (50 mm finderscope, f3.2/ QHY 5L-II Nikon D5100, 23x300 sec; ISO800; T=7-9C Stacking and processing in IRIS, version 5.59 and Photoshop CS2<br /><br />1 comment http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13163-m63.html http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13163-m63.html Mon, 16 Mar 2015 20:25:33 -0400 MW3 - The Volcano IFN <a href="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/member-galleries/p13162-mw3-the-volcano-ifn.html"><img title="d_Ursae_Majoris_IFN_12.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.astrophotogallery.org/data/500/thumbs/d_Ursae_Majoris_IFN_12.jpg" alt="d_Ursae_Majoris_IFN_12.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Ginge<br /><br />Description}: This is first light from my newly built observatory in the woods 3km from my home.
