Confirmation images of Comet C/2015 V2 (JOHNSON) on 2015-11-04

The comet C/2015 V2 (JOHNSON) was discovered on 2015-11-03 by  Jess A. Johnson at the Catalina Sky Survey( MPC Code 703).  While C/2015 V2 (JOHNSON) was on the Possible Comet Confirmation Page in an effort to help in the confirmation  I obtain a total of  18-- 60 Second Luminance BIN2 Images (in two runs) on itelescope.net's   (TEL T11 0.50-m f/6.8 astrograph + CCD + f/4.5 focal reducer) at Mayhill, New Mexico (New Mexico Skies) - MPC H06 and created 4 stacks of  4 images with Astrometrica.

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.
