hi all, Michelwink.gif ,

 

I show You a triple conjunction :

 

25.02.2020, 3:30 UT, region SQL 21.1mag, directly in front of my home smile.gif

 

12" Dobson f/4, V 69x, 96x, 155x

 

20200225xC2019Y4bei NGC 3594CN.jpg

 

 

I made the sketch with 69x and limit 15.0mag

 

Distances to comet:

 

M 97 - 46.5`

M 108  - 49`

and the little Galaxie NGC 3594 ( 14.3mag) only 9`

 

( the comet ly under the Galaxie in my sketch )

 

I measurded the comet with V 155x :

 

13.4 mag , DC 3 , diameter 1.1`

Christian

Excellent Christian, good job! This is maybe the best comet for the near future.  I made only one difficult observation of this comet, maybe very good view in a while.

Nice, Roy. I was looking for it the other night. No joy. Your sketching style, I like it. :)

Hi all

 

Here my last observation : https://www.cloudyni...mag/?p=10037724

This comet becomes interesting; even out of the Christian's rendez-vous wink.gif

 

Clear sky to you all

Michel
