Now that the sky has finally
cleared and the moon is gone, I can take pictures of the comet again.
Unfortunately, the area where the comet is located is difficult to shoot
and heavily light polluted. I used a new filter to try and help with
the light pollution. Its a Hoya Image Intensifier (Didymium) 72mm for my
200mm F/2.8 lens. Below is the first image I created with the filter
and lens setup. .
Comet Machholz on 2/4/05. Canon Digital Rebel, 1600 ISO, 200mm F/2.8 (320mm Effective F.L.,) Didymium filter & eight 30 second images stacked in Registax with a single dark-frame subtraction. After stacking, I made adjustments to levels, color and brightness/contrast.
