one comet, one planet

Tom was anxious to knock down some more deep sky objects. And to tag the comet, C/2014 S2 (PANSTARRS), near Polaris. Before the snow.

I joined him briefly on the Observing Pad. The comet was obvious even though a small, faint smudge.

He also showed Uranus. Nice. Couldn't spot any moons though.

I asked Tony if I could open the GBO but he wasn't comfortable with them, with the new roof rail supports not yet in place.
