Messier 50 and Comet 103p/Hartley 2

Messier 50 and Comet 103p/Hartley 2

By some stroke of luck, the past few days have been fairly decent – and with no moon, I’ve been doing lots of imaging. If you remember, back in the October / November time frame, I was able to get some pretty Comet 103p Hartley 2 images. Now, with it around magnitude 10, and quite a bit further away, the four inch NP101is isn’t producing quite as exciting images. However, with open cluster Messier 50 nearby, I thought it’d make for a nice shot.

Definitely not so spectacular looking anymore! Looks like we’ll have to wait another six and a half years!
