Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) and the Butterfly Nebula (M6) on October 8, 2014
While I was busy taking images of the Lunar Eclipse, the remote telescope iTelescope T12 was silently collecting images of comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) as the eclipse faded. Pity the clouds came over, I ended up with only 9 of the 20 planed images, and no colour frames (sad face). Nonetheless, the results are pretty stunning.
It is an amazing piece of sky, with added comet. Here's an animation.
