Posted by & filed under .

Comet C/2006 OF2 (Broughton) was quite high from the horizon at the moment of the photographing and therefore a good target for photographing. Despite the comet was quite faint, only 11…12 magnitudes, it had a long tail that is clearly visible in the picture below. Taurus Hill Observatory research team managed to photograph this comet 7./8.10.2008.

Observers: Veli-Pekka Hentunen and Markku Nissinen.
