Inner coma of 168P
      #5465556 - 10/11/12 03:44 PM Attachment (59 downloads)

This night the air was quite steady and I decided to examine the bright inner coma. For the sketch I used magnifications between 144x and 360x, the higher the fine the detals, but then I could only see features near the nucleaus clearly.
I observed form my backyard, fst around 5m5, rather more inferior.

A fine sketch Uwe, with a lot of good detail within the inner coma, giving the impression there are two main jets emitting volatiles from the cometary body.

Thank you for your comments.

I had observed the comet two day ago from a rural observation site. I decided not again to drive to there but to observe in my backyard. Here it is easier to have a fan at the scope ant to use an eq platform. So I could use high magnification and high contrasty and sharp eyepieces, which have a small field.

Uwe,

Very interesting study. Good idea to look closely--the outburst appears to have produced some observable reactions.

Nice sketch Uwe, I'm happy that you've also seen some details with a similar setup like mine!

I think this comet still holds some surprises for us
