Ok so today i had clear skies for the first time in about 3 weeks,
and i finnaly could photograph comet Lulin.

I've also learned where dwarf planet Ceres is.
I've shot them both at around 21:00 UTC (20:00 local time) and later around 2:00 UTC (1:00 local)
You can see Lulin moved much


And i was suprised to see Ceres moved too.

Nice animation and nice capture of Ceres! I just redid my latest Lulin image from 2-24 by using the "stack on stars + comet" feature of Deep Sky Stacker and then used an HDR program to tonemap the result.

Here's my set-up (my baby) that I use for ISS photography as well as deep space imaging.

I've recently boughtt a Orion deep space imager II and was tinkering with it a bit yesterday with M42.
The following result isn't too shabby for a 80 second exposure using a 102 MM guide refractor.

My first try on the ISS through a telescope,
ISO was 1250 and exposure was 1/640s
Next time I'll use a lower ISO, these are slightly overexposed.


Can anyone identify the features?
It was a low flyby, maxing at around 30 degrees. So this should be the side of the station.
It seems that the solar panels go from upper left to lower right, however I'm not sure.
