Images from Sunflower Observatory

Here you'll see images and information pertaining to recently discovered comets imaged by Sunflower Observatory.

All observations at Sunflower Observatory are conducted with a 12" (30cm.) Meade LX-200 Schmidt Cassegrain telescope equipped with an SBIG ST9E CCD camera. Unless otherwise noted all images are taken at F7.2 and oriented North up and East to the left as they appear in the sky.

Most of the research conducted at Sunflower Observatory involves Asteroids. This includes follow up of known asteroids to reduce orbital uncertainty and estimation of rotational period via light curve determination and analysis.

Occasionally, images are taken of recently discovered Supernovae.
