Comet C/2006 W3 Christiensen in GRAS
W3 is well placed for observation at the moment, and the weather finally gave me a break. I took this image using the remote telescope GRAS 8 shortly after moonrise using a 120 second exposure and a luminance filter and 1x binning.
C/2006 W3 Christiensen is moving rather fast at the moment, which is why the image is elongated. I will try and see if I can stack shorter images if the weather is kind to me. In the meantime, have a look at these images here and here.
