Santa was good with me this year again, and gave me a new astro-camera: the ASI 1600MM.
However, the First Light shots were acquired in poor conditions, with lots of fog and low temperatures (-5 Celsius).
The main subject was comet 45P Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova, which for now sits very low above the South-Western horizon. An elongated coma and a ghost tail may be glimpsed in the following shot.
And since this was first light, I’ve also decided to image the “Double Cluster”:
This small-format, 16 Megapixels camera will surely be put to serious testing the following weeks 😉
