After seeing Honor Wheeler’s image’s of Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) CMHASD member Jim Burchell decided to have a go at trying to image the Comet too.
Jim said ”It was rather difficult as the Comet wasn’t very easy to see as there was some high cloud and the Moon was in play.
I was struggling to see the Comet with binoculars so in the end I used my 70 mm telescope but it still wasn’t obvious.
The image below was taken with a Pentax KP camera attached to Altair Astro 70mm ED triplet refactor at ISO 1600 and 15 Second exposure.”
The comet is the fuzzy patch in the centre of the image below taken on the 29th Jan 2023 by Jim.
The next image below of the Comet was taken by Jim on Monday 30th Jan 2023 using the same setup as the day before. Again, it was quite difficult to find as the Moon was bright. The image was then processed by Jim on his phone using an enhanced image tool.
