Aurora and moving skies !

here is a very long time lapse from last night 22nd April 2017      

Twin Quasar close to NGC3079

some 9.1 billion light years away this is one of the farthest objects i have imaged. -- Not really sure if i could image this but it is present and split in the image although faint.   This was just 10 x 10 mins of images and really needed more to smooth out the noise in the background.  

More Aurora Another movie from the other night — it really never gets boring.

 

Comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresák

It was at it closest approach on the 1st of April the same day that Ikea and BBC had the best April fool jokes ! On that day it will be only 13 million miles away and almost visible on the naked eye. The attached image was taken on the 1st of April between 9:45 pm and 10:15 pm. It is a stack of 10 1 min images at ISO5000 with 400mm zoom.
