Year 2006 images - Comet 73P/Schwassmann

Comet 73P/Schwassmann
Comet 3P/Schwassmann

28th April, 2006 Coventry, UK.
Captured with a Meade DSI colour CCD camera. Fragment B.
It was a very misty. Image consists of 50 X 4 second exposures captured with a  Meade DSI colour camera on my 222mm f/7.9 Newtonian with a .5 focal reducer. I was very surprised at the speed this fragment travelled in such a short time. The next 5 images show just how far it did travel in around 50 minutes.
