Comet Leonard, M3, and a Meteor Streak across the Sky
Here is another amazing astrophotography image shared by Terry Hancock and Tom Masterson. The photo above was taken at Purdy Mesa, CO.
Terry says about this image: “In this image taken on the early morning of Dec. 3, 2021, at Grand Mesa Observatory, Comet C/2021 A1 (Leonard) is seen moving past Globular Cluster M3 in our night sky when a meteor streaked across this scene, lighting up the image and creating one of the most spectacular shots we have had the privilege of working with.”

Chroma Technology manufactures the highest quality astronomy filters with durable, sputtered hard coatings using single substrates of the best glass, eliminating the need for laminations. All primary filter coatings are applied on the front surface and anti-reflection coatings on the rear surface to prevent ghosting and to maximize transmission.
Highly precise and accurate, the passbands of these filters remain spectrally stable and do not drift in response to extreme temperature fluctuations or changes in humidity. All filters may be used with apertures of f/4 or smaller. Chroma provides custom coating services for more demanding imaging applications requiring larger apertures such as f/3 or f/2. They also can provide larger sizes and unique passbands upon request.
