Imaging Tsuchinshan-Atlas C2023 A3

This little comet now roams the constellation Virgo, at a modest brightness of m10.5

It was discovered only last January, by both Tsuchinshan and the ATLAS facility in South Africa.

There is some excitement, as the comet has the potential to become naked-eye later this year. Perihelion is late September.

Imaged for 30x60s C14 F7 ASI2600MM monochrome.

SQM was 20.40 but later that night increased to 20.70!
