Caught 64/P in the 13" on the 1st of Nov late night from home in this bortle 3ish zone.
Need a little power, even though the evening was very transparent. 7mm at around was needed to absolutely confirm at However better presentation in the 12mm for 125X Non stellar, but this was for whatever reason tough to find that night.
may have been the field stars behind the comet. There were 3 Comets I observed that night/am including 38/P and 21/P later in the wee hours.
Ive mixed them up ? Was very tired . In my notes 38/P was improving from last observation so I think correct. Spent about 6.5 hours observing (total) that night and next AM
I believe I am in similar skies as above post #3
Yeah 64p was in front of a little cluster of stars Thursday night /Friday morning so I went back out to confirm last night. I thought the nebulosity might be in with the stars.
There's no object there , though, I don't think, but yeah, made it a little harder. Last night wasn't too bad though.
That star field gave me fits too!! Weird. I haven't been out much, though, lately. That much elevation is hard with a dob, too, maybe that was it?
