hi all, 

 

my first clear, moonless hour under the stars in 2021  crazy.gif !

It was very cold -1°C, windy and changing thin clouds in the regions,

but it was possible for me to observe three comets in that short timewindow before clouds came.

hi Michael,

the two others, 141P and 398P, showed not some interesting details last night in my 12"er.

So it is in not wortwhile to invest time to work up a scetch.
