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.
