    Hi again, I tried imaging of the close rendezvous of 244P and P/2013 A3 on May 2, 2013 with my biggest scope. Here is the result.

      Hi again,

      I tried imaging of the close rendezvous of 244P and P/2013 A3 on May 2, 2013 with my biggest scope.

      Here is the result.

      It was impossible for me to detect the darker one at expected magnitude 21.1 with the scope.
