Comet C/2009 P1 Garrad April 17, 2012
Stack of 5 images stretched in FITS liberator, then stacked in ImageJ,despeckled then cropped.
The ion tail visible in the image from the 11th is no longer well defined.
Along with flying solo while my beloved life partner swans around in the US teaching people how to teach people to survive bushfires (yes, you read that right) lousy weather has made imaging comet Garadd somewhat erratic (waves to Rolando Ligustri), plus EldestOne has used up all our high speed internet downloading games and whatnot, so downloading my images c r a w l s p a i n f u l ly. Therefore, as well as my usual slackness backlog, I have a long imaging backlog and STEREO backlog.
Hopefully in the coming week I can get some more imaging processing done.
