1st September, Comet Garrad and Coathanger

It was clear(ish) for the first time in a long while on Thursday night, so I took the opportunity of imaging Comet Garrad as it a approached the Coathanger (Brocchi's Cluster), the image also captured NGC 6802.

This is stacked from 10 off 60 second exposures in each of RGB filters with Maxim DL. The comet moved considerably in the 40 or so minutes that it took and it's image is streaked.

So, I also made an animation from the individual red frames.

This clearly show the movement.
