Comet charts revised

Posted by Graham Relf at 12:12 on 2013 Mar 11

New charts have been added to britastro.org/computing/charts_comet.htmlI have noted some forthcoming close approaches to deep sky objects. It looks like the tail of C/2011L4 will pass over M31 towards the end of this month but of course it may be hard to see/photograph due to altitude and Moon.(You may need to clear your browser's cache to see the new page.
