hi all,
I stood the last weeks at the island Losinj/Croatia.
I had 4 hours dark nights at 43.5°. Enough to see a lot !
Here a sketch serie with my 16" f/4.5 Dobson, V 82x
down to up
12.June
13.June
14.June

In my 10x50 binocular I fixed the magnitude by 6.7mag.
The Swanfilter pushed the image from Lemmon !

Bye Christian

Is this a pre-print starfield?

hi all,

thank´s for Your comments.

Jef, Aquarellia :
I print field charts with Guide 9.0
( because I can´t draw so perfectly round stars ;) )
then I sketch the comet in the right position.

Bye
Christian
