19th May 2011 Notes: Picture of Comet Elenin

Moon light is still having an effect on our view of comet elenin, but it is still visible in our picture below.

Below left is the original image from the telescope which does not show comet elenin very well due to the light pollution from the Moon. But all was not lost…….

The image in the middle shows our result of processing the left hand image image . We sharpened the image and highlighted the sources of light which has made comedt Elenin that much more visible.

The image on the far right has the line pointing out exactly where elenin is in the picture. Due to the moonlight we cannot see much detail of Elenin apart from it being a dot of light among the stars.
