Stay Home, Play Astronomy

I think the astronomy is basically the self-isolated hobby. We can spend the time alone at home and at backyard under today’s circumstances.

The comet ATLAS C/2019 Y4 seems to be getting brighter and brighter. The prediction says the peak seems to be unbelievable level. Nobody knows it will be going as expected though. Anyway, a nice-looking comet is coming close to us.

And this is the IDAS filter to create the high-contrast comet shape under bright sky or toward horizon. Now a filter for ZWO cameras is in stock. A conventional 1.25″ size will be available shortly.

And this was my test shot taken last month. It was a different comet though. The filter is promising. It captured it over the sky of the super bright Los Angles basin.

Let’s try the comet at home.
