Comet 29P

Comet 29P: luminance.

2022-12-16 Observation:

Come 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann, mid December, while at a magnitude of about 15.7 (source: JPL) in Gemini. The dataset has luminance which can be used for photometry or for rotational gradient filter (called Larson Sekanina filter in PixInsight) to detect cryovolcanism of the nucleus. The RGB can be used for imaging workflow (comet alignment in particular).
