Revisiting Comet Hartley 2


















Another attempt at comet Hartley. It was at magnitude 6.3 when I imaged this. This is 10*2 minute exposures, stacked in Deep Sky Stacker using the "comet mode".

Below is an attempt at making a movie of it as it moved across the sky over a 30 minute period. If you squint your eyes, maybe you'll actually see the comet. :-(

Excellent comet shot! Green glow among the round little stars! Star color came out very nice in this one, Phil. Congrats.
