Al Ernst's Image of Comet 46P/Wirtanen

Happy New Year from NJAA...!

To finish off 2018 with a bang, here is an image of comet 46P/Wirtanen shortly after it passed by Capella taken by member Al Ernst from his back yard in Bridgewater, New Jersey.  The image was made using a Televue NP127is scope and a QSI583 camera from  2x2 - 4 ten minute subs while tracking the comet. 

Beautiful shot showing the comet's coma Al, thanks for sharing it.
