Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd Near NGC 2683, 15 May, 2012

Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd imaged with iTelescope T14 on 15 May, 2012. To the right is the galaxy NGC 2683, near top centre is the faint galaxy IC 2421. Click to embiggen (its big but it's worth it).

Finally got a shot of comet Garradd near the galaxy NGC 2683. I have a bunch of other Garradd shots I have just not had time to process yet, but I thought this one was the priority to get done.

Technically, it is a stack of 4 x 120 second luminance exposures, stretched in FITSliberator and stacked in ImageJ, the stacked SUMMED, then a square root process, followed by despeckling. I thought it came our rather well.
