Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy: a comparison panel (22 to 29 Dec. 2014)
While comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy is getting better and better for us in the northern hemisphere, we managed to put together all the four images captured via The Virtual Telescope.
The panel above shows amazing evolution in the ion tail: this comet showed to be continuously evolving, making its observation even more rewarding. All the images were remotely collected with the PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project. The telescope tracked at the apparent rate of the comet.
