hi all,

10.2.2014, 4:20 UT, very clear and cold 0°C
yesterday in the morning time I saw this rare conjunction.
My 15x70 Bino have a field of 4°, enough to show the "twins" and the open cluster NGC 6633.
Here my sketch. I put the comets in a starchart print
(Guide 9)
I observed out of my open sleeping room window with my 15x70 and later with the short 7.7" Dobson f/4 and 36x !

Bye
Christian

Yup, very nice, Christian. I'm enjoying the observations of this pair as sketched from others. Here's hoping I can get my own view tomorrow.

Hi Christian,

nice technique to merge computer printout with the sketch of the comets.

Christian,

A really fine sketch showing both comets so close in the heavens.
