C2015 V2 (Johnson) - Wide field view of comet

Submitted by jimwcoleman

Here is a widefield view (positive and negative images) of comet C/2015 V2 (Johnson) in Bootes. Tonight, the comet was at magnitude 6.9, fainter than last night. This is a stack of 40x20sec subs. The images were acquired at prime focus using a modded Canon T3i at ISO 1600 with an AstroTech AT72ED refractor on a Celestron AVX mount.

Beautiful shots Jim. One of these night I hope to be able to just see one at the eyepiece. When I can find one high enough in the sky from my backyard I will try photos. Just seeing one would be pretty cool, Nice work!
