 Comet C/2017 passing M106


Vivek Chari, Texas, USA, 24–25 June 2020

Vivek says: “This was my first time capturing a comet and I only had a window of three nights. The first night was frustrated by clouds, while the second was plagued by equipment failures. Luckily, on the third night the clouds cleared and the stars aligned – it was well worth the effort.”

Equipment: Nikon D5300, Stellarvue SV80 apo refractor, Sky-Watcher EQ6R Pro mount Exposure: 8.7 hr, ISO 200 Software: NINA, PixInsight
