Details
Date Taken: 11/03/2013
Photographer: Doug Hubbell
Location: Palomar Mountain
Other Telescope: Orion EON 120mm f/7.5 ED Apochromatic Refractor Telescope
Other Mount: Orion Atlas EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount
Other Camera: Orion Starshoot Pro
Exposure: 20 Five Minute Exposures
Notes: Here's my stab at comet Lovejoy. Interesting part about this image is the comet was moving from the lower right towards the upper left in a diagonal pattern. However, the tail of the comet has a horizontal tail! You'd think the tail would follow the path the comet was moving. I was having a problem processing this image, as you can see there are star trails moving in the direction the comet was headed. This is about 20 five minute exposures using SSPRO CCD camera. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably use less exposure time. Lovejoy was MUCH brighter than I expected!
