My First Image of Comet C/2015 ER61
|Comet C/2015 CR61 taken on 6 April at 5:05 ACST (5 April 19:35 UT). Stack of 10 x 15 second images 400 ASA. Canon IXUS. Stacked in DeepSky Stacker||Comparison chart of the same area of sky showing comet location on the 6th|
On my first night that I found comet C/2015 CR61 I took some pictures, they didn't come out so great, but here is the best stack I could come up with for historical purposes. Visually it was very easy to see in 10x50 binoculars, much brighter than it appears in this picture (smeared due to Earth's rotation).
