The Comet C/2002 V1 Neat

Comet C/2002 V1 Neat
by Clayton Kessler

It was January 21, 2003; early evening. The comet was very easy to spot in 10X50 binoculars and it looked great in the 6” (a new Schmidt Newtonian telescope).

Attached is a poor photo of the comet that I took that evening. This is two exposures of 5 minutes each digitally combined. The shots were taken on Kodak LE400 film. I used the Schmidt Newtonian for the astrograph. The exposures were unguided which accounts for the poor quality.
