Comets over Christmas - La Palma and Faulkes Combine

Our "amateur" astronomy research team working on comet and asteroid related projects imaged a range of objects using the 2-metre telescopes of Faulkes (F65 & E10 MPC codes) and the La Palma-Liverpool (J13 MPC code).

We're currently working with support astronomers at La Palma working out methodologies for taking more detailed observations of the compositions of the comets ahead of a long term project supporting the Rosetta spacecraft mission, investigating dust and gas emissions from the comets.

Here's our team blog
