Comet Panstarrs X1
in the Evening sky
November 8, 2015

 This 11th magnitude object rises later in the evening in Perseus but is well placed for imaging by 9pm. A unique spiral shape to the dust tail, and a nice colorful starfield to boot. This was with the 12.5" Home made newtonian, and ST10xme CCD for 15 minutes total.
