Comet C/2015 V2 Johnson

Ross On Wye, Herefordshire

Unmodified Canon EOS 1100d with Altair Starwave 80ED-R telescope on a Celestron AVX Mount. The individual frames were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and then processed in Adobe Photoshop.

Taken the weekend of the Astrocamp star party in Cwmdu, Brecon Beacons. This is my very first image of a comet, taken as it made it’s way through the constellation of Hercules. 10 x 90 second frames at ISO 1600 with 5 dark frames and 5 bias frames.
