29p 20130618 peach

Here is an image obtained earlier today of 29P following its recent outburst. A dense looking coma with hints of a darker streak inside about half way out to the edge. The comet was only 8 degrees away from the moon at the time of the image and i initially thought the data unusable, but the central portion of the field was just about ok. 20"CDK F4.5. FLI-PL6303E. Single 600sec exposure unfiltered 20130618 Damian Peach
