Comet C/2012 K1 (PANSTARRS) new

Dear observer,

I recommend looking at this comet. After dusk the comet is high in the eastern sky and easy to observe. I had some problems seeing it with my pair of 7x50 binocular,. But it shows much detail in my 12 inch Dobsonian. I saw the long ion tail and a well spearted dust tail. The ion tail contains three streamers. The comet works well with a comet filter.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Comet C/2012 K1 (PANSTARRS). This does appear to be a very interesting comet to observe and follow. I will have to study it myself. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards,
Carlos

Hey Uwe, thank you for this observation. Just when Mars is going away, we needed something new to sketch. You push us all to observe this nice comet.
