COMET 46P / WIRTANEN with METEORA from the Piani dellAvaro 04.12.2018 at 21.30.
Despite the crystal clear evening and the location away from the lights at the Piani dellAvaro (1750 meters), it is difficult to see it you have to wait a few more days. A small glow can be seen at the binoculars. In the photo, made with a focal length of 14mm, I reconstructed the constellations so as to easily find the comet on its way to the Pleiades. I was also lucky enough to take a meteor. In the box the Wirtanen shot with a focal length of 200mm.
Details: Nikon D600, focal Samyang 14mm, exposure: 50 seconds f/5 ISO 1600. Nikon D5500, focal Nikon 80-200mm at 200mm, exposure: 1 minute f/4 ISO 3200.
