Day before yesterday, I unpacked the telescope from its tiny rain shed and managed to snag a few frames of SH2-298. Feast your eyes on the aptly named “Thor’s Helmet”! It is a new object for me, and I was happy to get this image.
Last night I had every intention of getting an image of comet C-2022-E3. Conditions were good, but sleep overtook me. (The comet doesn’t get above the trees until after midnight.) But tonight, sky willing, I will photograph C-2022-E3.
It won’t visit us again for 50000 years. If we get our shit together we might visit it before it visits us.
