Object/Date: C/2013 US10 (Catalina) @ Jun.24,2015 Tech data: Planewave 20" CDK f/4.4 reflector & FLI PL09000 camera (L:3120s Bin1 + RGB:1x60s Bin2) Description: Comet C/2013 US10 (Catalina) imaged on June 24, 2015 placed to an angular distance of 28' from the spiral barred galaxy NGC 7793 and on a background with tens of tiny galaxies in the constellation of Aquarius. Unlike which I took two days ago, in this I could take the necessary shots for compose a color image. Aside from a esthetic improvement, in this version highlights a coma with strong greenish tone, as well as a halo of same color that extends until a diameter of 6'. Location: Remotely from Siding Spring (Australia)
