Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko: a image – 30 Jan. 2022
Several years after our last view, we observed comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko again, capturing part of its nice tail. Here it is our image.
The image above comes from the average of 14, 300-second exposure, unfiltered, remotely collected with the “Elena” (PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E) robotic unit available at the Virtual Telescope Project. The telescope tracked the apparent motion of the comet. A couple of bright, known asteroids are in the field of view.
Further observations will follow.
