Comet PanSTARRS (C/2016 R2) – January 18, 2018

A rather difficult comet for small instruments. Imaged under decent skies in the Comana Woods. 26×120 sec, with the 115mm APO and ASI 1600MM in Bin2x2. Guiding via PHD in windy conditions at -2 Celsius.

And a short animation, showing the movement of the nucleus in about 70 minutes.
