Comet Kudo-Fujikawa C/2002 X5 Comet Kudo-Fujikawa
Image obtained at the 3towers Observatory 31 December 02 ~13:00 UT.
This image is a composite of 60-second red (R), 60-second green (V), 90-secopnd blue (B), and 60-second clear (CL) exposures added together to make a tri-color CCD image. It was obtained with a 12-inch LX 200 telescope and an Apogee AP7 CCD camera with an Isis FW 1 filter wheel.

Comet Linear on 23 March 2002 at 12:00 hrs UT C/2000 WM1 Comet Linear (C/2000 WM1) March 23, 2002 This image is a composite of 30-second red (R), 30-second green (V), 60-second blue (B), and 60-second clear (CL) exposures added together to make a tri-color CCD image. It was obtained with a 12-inch LX 200 telescope and an Apogee AP7 CCD camera with an Isis FW 1 filter wheel.
Comet Linear on 2 April 2016 252P/Linear 252P/Linear This periodic comet has the same orbit as P/2016 BA14 (PANSTARRS). 252/P is probably much larger and is certainly brighter than BA14 which may have broken off the original parent comet.
