Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd near NGC 4236-1 - March 14, 2012

Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd near the galaxies NGC 4236-1 (the big obvious one), UGC 7490 (near top of image) and NGC 4250. The image is a stack of 5x120 second images taken with iTelescope T14.

Images were stacked in ImageJ, SUMMED, the given a light despeckle. Despite some slight cloud interference, this turned out very nicely.

Embiggen for full cometary and galactic goodness.

I have been grossly neglecting my C/2009 P1 images, I have a whole bunch, black and white and colour, archived ready to process. I just have to wait for a quiet time (Ha!)
