These images of Fragment C of Comet 73P/Schwassmann Wachmann 3 sliding past
M57 were collected with a Tak Epsilon-210 on an NJP mount.
I imaged with many different exposure times. The top image was 120 seconds, the second image
was 30 seconds, the third was 60 seconds. The second images was the first collected after M57
cleared the treeline. The last image was the last collected. The images were collected between
10:51 pm to 12:22 am on the night of May 7-8, 2006. The image was collected and processed in
iCCD with an SXV-H9C. The image was unguided.
