Comet C/2009 E1 (Itagaki) is very difficult object to photograph due it is in very low altitude in the western sky just few moments after the sunset. The comet is also quite dim and it is visible only with the large telescopes. THO research team photographed the comet 26.3.2009.

Observers: Veli-Pekka Hentunen and Markku Nissinen.
