Contest Time! Do You Have What it Takes to be a CometTard? *We have a winner!*
CometTards! We ride!

This contest is for non-upgraded members for a free one month trial upgrade. I took a couple of pictures of a comet this morning using the T5 telescope on the itelescope.net network ( [link to www.itelescope.net] ). You can see it moving here:
cometunid
Here are the full images individually.
Taken starting at 8:43 UT (10 minute exposure):

Taken starting at 9:00 UT (10 minute exposure):

For a free one month trial upgrade, name that comet. Non-upgraded members only please, each member gets only 1 guess . So don't guess, figure out what it is. The information above is enough to definitively determine which comet it is.

Cosmic ray hits. Not actually moving with the comet, just one occurred after another in a location that made it look like a moving object.

Thanks! AC's can answer, but you have to be willing to register an account if you win (and please do it with the same IP addy so that I can be sure I'm awarding the right person).

Hot pixels are therefore annoying. On the other hand cosmic ray hits are awesomely physicstardish...


I will be back with my guess.

Looked at the comets that were visible in your hemisphere that could be seen with the T5 that early in the morning. Was it around 04:50am?

Hey Astro! Just wanted to thank you for making science fun :)

I have been fascinated with pretty much everything since a very early age and it is awesome to see people get involved with making science a fun thing to do!!

Unfortunately I didnt win this time but I will keep an eye out for your next out as I love the challenge and the journey that is discovering an answer.

Thank you again! :D
