Time Lapse of Comet C/2018 N2 (ASSASN)

Here is a time lapse sequence of Comet C/2018 N2 (ASSASN).

This comet was discovered by the All-Sky Automated Survey For Supernovae (ASSASN) using software to analyze the images from one night to the next, and detect anything that is not a star.

The sequence was made on October 8th, 2019, between 1:35 am and 2:11 am while the comet was near the Triangulum constellation, and the M33 galaxy.

This time lapse is from 35 frames, each 60 seconds exposure. I used my Vixen SXD mount which is converted to OnStep, a Celestron C8 with 0.6X reducer, and a Canon T4i DSLR. Autoguiding was done using a QHY5L-II-M mono camera, and an SVBONY 60mm F/4 guide scope.

You can see the comet slowly move towards 11 o'clock
