Comet C/2012 X1 LINEAR 28 January 2018

Comet C/2012 X1 LINEAR imaged with iTelescope T14. 5x120 second exposures aligned and stacked in ImageJ then a median Z projection applied (brings out the tail more). Click to embiggen.

Comets C/2013 R1 Lovejoy and C/2012 X1 LINEAR are coming closer together in the early morning sky. The will be closest aroun February 6, and I am trying to make a mosaic. Weather is not helping. This image of C/2012 X1 was supposed to be panel 1 of a 2 panel mosaic, but the weather had other ideas.

Still, not bad, I cropped out the open cluster in the upper part of the image to focus on the comet.
