After long weeks of clouds and lots of rain, we had a beautiful clear day finally . In the evening I was still able to observe comet 12P/PONS-BROOKS and take a high resolution spectrum (of the H-alpha region) of a Be star omi Aqr. After about 1 hour unfortunately clouds came up again and I had to close the observatories. (Due to the lack of suitable reference stars in the FOV, I could not determine an Af(rho) parameter for comet 12P observation)
Comet 12P/PONS-BROOKS cannot keep hiding behind the clouds and rain showers. on Nov 24, I was ready in the observatory and in between the clouds, a very brief clearing and was able to observe the comet briefly by taking 3 sub-images.
After a cloudy day with rain showers in the evening, there was a brief clearing for about 1 hour and I was able to observe comet 12P between the clouds. After an hour, clouds but also fog gathered so I had to close the observatory.
After a day of rain, the skies cleared and it was a reasonably clear night with very high humidity. The high humidity caused some technical problems at start of observing. Eventually after about 2 hours, I was able to start anyway. Subsequent comets could be observed until clouds drifted in again. 12P, 32P, 126P, 144P.
a clear evening after a rainy day. I could observe some comets: 12P, C/2023 H2 . The same object as yesterday, Nov 6. , mentioned on MPC’s PCC was observed, unfortunately I had to discontinue observation after 6 shots due to cloud cover followed by rain. Later, this object was given the name C/2023 V5 (LEONARD). I could obtain some spectra of Be-stars as well: V442 And, KY And
between the cloudy and rainy weather i have a short clear period to observe some comets: 12P, C/2023 H2 . An object listed on MPC’s PCC was observed, although conditions were not so good. Later, this object was given the name C/2023 V5 (LEONARD). Also some spectra could be obtained of Be-stars: nu Cyg, V357 Lac, V2119 Cyg.
After a long period of high winds, storms and persistent clouds with rain, the observatory was able to observe for a while until clouds came up again and the observatory had to close. comets that could be observed are: 12P/PONS-BROOKS, C/2023 T2 (Borisov). With the high resolution LHiRess spectrograph i could obtain a spectrum of V586 Cyg .
after most of the clouds are gone i could start with observations of comet 12P. After 1 hour clouds where coming in and humidity was very high. So i must close the observatory again.
