Image of 2010 V1

Martin Mobberley caught this image of Comet C/2010 V1 (Ikeya-Murakami) with the Global -Rent-a-Scope G02 imager in the early morning twilight.

While potentially visible in good binoculars from dark sky sites, this comet will be dashed hard to image because it is so close to the horizon.

Congratulations to Martin for getting such a good picture (and how did Ernesto Guido and Giovanni Soster get their good image of 2010 V1?).

I was going to try with G14, but it lost tracking.
