Comet Lovejoy

BORG users’ image is coming in.

10 Jan 2015 using my Borg 60ED f/4 and Atik 460ex (694 chip) camera.  I had noticed that the comet was in the same field of view as part of Sharpless 245 (the Eridanus Bubble, the western section of the huge nebula whose eastern part is Barnard’s Loop in Orion), so in addition to 12 minutes of L and 5 minutes each of R,G,B I also captured 90 minutes of H-alpha for the nebula.
