Comet Schaumasse and NGC 3489

24P/Schuamasse and NGC 3489. 27×180 sec @ ISO 3200, IDAS-LPS, TV-85 at F/5.6, Canon T3.

Not much detail for periodic comet 24P/Schaumasse, which was low to the horizon over a stronger LP dome when I started taking the sub-images for this shot.   I thought it might have a discernible tail that my camera might pick up since Cartes du Ceil showed it with one.  LoL!   Unfortunately, no software (or humans) can predict exactly what comets will do, which is why they make such good astrophotography targets.   😉
