Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) 13.2 mag in Auriga on 26 Feb 2019 ~21:00UT

C/2018 Y1 Iwamoto is a long-period comet originally from the Oort Cloud and coming in near the Sun for the first time in over 1,000 years. Nasa did take Infrared images, you can find them here.

 

Here is a YouTube #short video, although there is longer one.
Did not have enough frames to do a longer and smoother one, I was self-learning.

On 26 Feb 2019, I managed to make a short video ~30-35 seconds of:
Comet C/2018 Y1 (Iwamoto) passing in Auriga on 26 Feb 2019 ~21:00 and swiftly going away, having already passed its nearest position.

Supposedly ~13.20 magnitude and one of the last frames got also a Aurigidis and supposedly to be inactive!

It was practically passing over M36 M37 M38 going towards M35 and under 37 Auriga – if I am correct.

All info according to ‘The Sky Live’ website.

You can find a different short movie of this C/2018 Y1 Iwamoto Comet on my YouTube Channel

C/2013 US10 - Comet Catalina - 10 Feb 2016 - 22:25UT Tested with non-modified camera - normal 30s shots at 12800 ISO !Re-edited in August 2017 and got better... I am surprised I got part of the tail better. You can also see the huge aqua-marina coloured halo surrounding the Comet which I did not manage to take as it was only a 30 seconds with a non-modified D7000 and my first time on a Comet The reddish at bottom and right side is light reflection from building and neighbour external light!
