Hi Jim- I went out to image it Monday evening, about 6 degrees off the horizon over Phoenix! The result isn't worth mentioning here after J.D.'s great image, but it was visible in binoculars. If you go to Heavens-above, they list it as 7.5, which I can believe. Note that only a week or two ago they had it listed as closer to 10th, so they recently must have upgraded the brightness from the nuclear magnitude... -Dean ________________________________________ From: az-observing-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [az-observing-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] on behalf of LISTS [jwarthmanlists@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, May 02, 2013 8:55 AM To: az-observing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [AZ-Observing] Re: Comet Panstarrs J.D., Great image!
