Re: 141P in outburst


 

Hi,

I imaged 141P last night (2021 Mar 05.4 UT) with a 41cm f4.5 Meade Newtonian and SBIG STF8300M CCD. 60 x 1 minute, Clear, 2x2. In my image, the tail is ~1' long in PA 85*. Attached.

0141P        KC2021 03 05.39387 05 27 56.87 +03 29 51.1          16.51R      E94

Cheers
John D, E94
