It was a long time ago I tried to photograph M27 a planetary nebula.
I used my old C11 @ 2800mm and a modded Canon 600D.

Comet Jacques @1764mm

A closer look at comet Jacques from Carpe Noctem Observatory, taken with a C11 @1764mm.
You can faintly see a little tail, the comet moved really fast at this focallenght..

Comet Jacques

The little green dot in the sky is comet Jacques. Beautiful in the telescope and easily visible with my Vixen binoculars. At the moment the comet lies beside the Cassiopeia constellation and the photo is taken with a 85mm lens and Canon 6D in my backyard in Vallentuna.

Comet Jacques from Carpe Noctem Observatory

So first session in the observatory after the summer nights. I enjoyed comet Jacques which was really nice through my C11 at 2800mm. The comet is moving really fast towards Cassiopeia, it is impossible to see without optics, a small telescope or great binoculars are needed.
