Great resolution Dan.  Nice to compare the two views - even the diffraction spikes are close.  :-)  Thanks for sharing yours.

No issues for us (Andy, Gregg and I).

Nope, I definitely checked the "more" dropdown this AM and there were only two options "All messages by this member" and "Report this message", which is what you get when it is not your own post. I was logged in as well. It is almost like it did not know who I was....

Very odd but works now. Could have been some funky browser behavior. Chrome has been doing some odd things lately on this machine.

At the bottom of your post (when viewed online), there’s a More button to the right of Reply and Like. One of the options is edit and then you can choose to have it resent or not.

There seems to be no way to edit posts. If there is a setting for this, it eludes me. One would expect it to be in the "more" dropdown, but it is not....Anyone know how to do this or is it an admin setting?

Hi

Comet T2 PanSTARRS is still displaying a nice tail as it drifts through Perseus. I captured it last night before moonrise as it passed just east of the open cluster NGC 1528:

Re: I2 Borisov

William McLaughlin
 

Indeed, nicely done. It is getting really faint. I had hoped to be able to try it with our setup at DSNM but with the comet getting lower and fainter and the system being a month  behind it's original planned operational date, that hope has faded along with the comet. I did  manage a "detection level" shot with a very similar system here at home in the Pacific NW but that was basically squeezed between our ever-present winter clouds so there were no skies available for a better attempt.

Re: I2 Borisov

Gregg Ruppel
 

Brian:
It was only faintly visible with 2 minute integrations at f/3.7, so unless there is an outburst soon we may have seen the last of it from the northern hemisphere.

Clear skies,

Hi all:

The interstellar comet I2 Borisov is moving further south (in Crater
now) and was difficult to image because of its low altitude and the waxing moon:
