Comet 45P
in the morning sky
February 8, 2017

 This comet is far fainter and much more diffuse than earlier expectations, however it did give me a chance to test out the new Bresser EXOS-2 mount on the balcony with the Stellarvue. The comet is moving much faster now as it rounds the sun and enters the morning sky. This is definitely an object for the 10 inch!
