A quickie Sunflower Galaxy. Needs more exposure, obviously. I killed some time waiting for M64 to get into position shooting this.
This object was the main goal of the night. Not quite the 3 hrs I wanted to give it, but almost. I took a nap while this was brewing, and ended it since the mount needed a meridian flip to keep going. Instead of doing that, I decided to get M13 instead.
Here’s a detail crop view with a little more color saturation to go along with the above:
Last object of my imaging session for the night of Feb 1st/2nd, 2020 was the globular cluster, M13. Twilight was just starting when I stopped at 100 sub-images. Not too bad for a quickie.
Here is an image of a comet that is big and bright enough to make some interesting images, especially when it passes near objects like the Double Cluster. I missed the closest approach of these two due to weather and other factors, but at least I got the parting shot of them together.
