Comet Schwassmann - Wachmann 73/P


    Fragment "C" of Schwassmann - Wachmann as it was drifting through Corona Borealis


Image Details:

We've been without a Great Comet since Hale-Bopp took off for the outer darkness quite a while back. But we have had some surprisingly nice little guys in the interim. This one put on quite a show, fragmented in multiple pieces as it was.

The Stellacam video was stacked in Registax 3 (I told the program to "track" on the comet head...this little sucker was moving fast)...
