Sky Conditions:
Clear
Wind Conditions:
Calm
Observation Start Time:
01:00
Observation End Time:
05:30
Summary:
Photometric analysis to date has met with mixed results. Will continue to attempt to verify transit ingress for observations of KC03C03248, observed on Friday Jan. 19th.
Observation of KC04C020098 planned for this evening, another challenge as only transit ingress is visible (egress elevation is too low in the sky) and the star is a dim magnitude 12.
Should comet lovejoy be visible tonight, longer exposure photos will be attempted prior to slated observation run.

Flat fields and bias frames have been acquired for the evening.
Observing from the Hab may be attempted if time allows.

Objects Viewed:
Comet Lovejoy
KC04C020098

Starry Skies,
