what might look like a competition, is just the try to present imaging results in a impressive way. We all have different conditions on weather, observation sites, techniques etc. and get better by learning from each other. I think, that's the best thing our community brings us
Due to weather conditions, I was not yet able to image A10. But I will definitely use comet tracking then, and illumination time of 300s per image.
The last night here was a starry one, but I am currently still not able to load my equipment in my car. Due to temperatures constantly below zero Centigrades and snow masses around the streets an walkways, a risk of accident while loading is to high. I visited our favorite site at Schweinitz, just after sunset driving to it, but decided at -12 degrees to decline. At night we had around -12 at home, that means 5 to 6 lower at the site. I am not that hard currently to take such a challenge...
The remote site (Südfrankreich) has bad cloudy weather conditions still, but is free of snow, with only a few degress below zero. It can only get better
For the animation of A1 (result at http://fg-kometen.vdsastro.de/pix/2021A1.htm
): it shows a small snippet of the whole field of view. But even in the uncropped field, I didn't notice any other faint object moving somewhere. This might be due to the much lower expected "densitiy of asteroids per square degree" at the higher ecliptical latitude of 47 degrees of C/2021 A1, compared to P/2013 A2 with less than only 3 degress ecliptical latitude.
