The mandatory eclips pictures….

A beautiful eclips! Very cold but really clear weather. A silent morning…

I have to say I expected a lot of pics on social media. But the number of pictures was an avalanche. Mostly good quality pics I have to say but still, I can’t understand why some individuals have such an irritating need to expose themselves with dozens of pics on the net. Anyway… here are some of mine 🙂

Comet Wirtanen on December 10th

Comet Wirtanen 46/p on the evening of December 10th, 2018. Image with a 120mm Esprit refractor F5, Nikon D750 ISO800 11x120s

The comet was traced with CdC and PHD2. 

Very easily seen in 10×50 binoculars, and also naked eye visible with adverted vision. 
Another sequence of shots taken that same night. This time 30 times 60 seconds at 1600 ISO.  Stacked in DSS on the comet.
