Confirmation Images of COMET P/2015 F1 (PANSTARRS) On 2015-03-22

COMET P/2015 F1 (PANSTARRS) WAS discovered on 2015 03 21 by the PANSTARRS sky survey. While it was on the PCCP Confirmation Page in an effort to help in the confirmation I made follow-up measurements on March 22, 23, and 24 from Siding Spring Observatory, Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia.(MPC Code Q62)


Here is a video of COMET P/2015 F1 (PANSTARRS) 28-60 Second Luminance BIN1 Images, taken with iTelescope Net's Telescope T27 (TEL T27 0.70-m f/6.6 CDK astrograph + CCD) 2015-03-22 16:43 UTC to 17:37 UTC. (C) Steven M. Tilley http://lagniappeobserving.blogspot.com/

Confirmation Images of COMET P/2014 X1 (ELENIN)

The COMET P/2014 X1 (ELENIN) was discovered by Leonid Elenin at ISON-NM Observatory near Mayhill, NM, USA(MPC H51) on 2014-12-12. While it was on the PCCP Confirmation Page in an effort to help in the confirmation I was able to obtain 33 -- 60 Second Luminance BIN2 Images(I try to run a series of 40 however the script started late and time ran over) on Telescope 18 (iTelescope.Net), AstroCamp Observatory. Nerpio, Spain (MPC I89) and did Data reduction on 4 Images.
