92P/Sanguin
Reported observations:
2002 Nov. 24.02 UT: m1=16.6 CCD, Dia.=8", DC=7/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Very faint and star-like; verified via two astrometric determinations over 40-min. NO coma noted, highly condensed]
2002 Nov. 13.06 UT: m1=15.0 CCD, Dia.=0.35', DC=5/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Very interesting morphology, with comet appearing quite distinct and bright despite proximity to gibbous moon. The SE quadrant of the coma appears to have somewhat of an annulus extending about 1/3 around from that center point, with opposing side quite diffuse and indistinct; very bright concentration near center, but not stellar]
2002 Nov. 07.09 UT: m1=15.4 CCD, Dia.=17", DC=7/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Comet is very nice, with distinct tail in PA 18 degrees for about 0.2 length. distinct nucleus (*)m2= 16.1 CCD. Very fine object, uniform coma brightness with very pronounced condensation]
2002 Nov. 03.34 UT: m1=13.7, Dia.=1', DC=2 ... 37-cm L (256x) ... Mike Linnolt (Dillingham, HI) [In-out method. Comps 13.7, 14.4. USNO-A2.0 B,R magnitudes converted to V. Dark sky site. Fairly diffuse and moderately difficult object seen only with averted vision.]
2002 Nov. 02.48 UT: m1=14.0:, Dia.=1', DC=4 ... 28-cm SCT (133x) ... Michael Mattiazzo (Wallaroo, South Australia)
2002 Oct. 27.55 UT: m1=14.0:, Dia.=1', DC=5 ... 28-cm SCT (133x) ... Michael Mattiazzo (Wallaroo, South Australia)
2002 Oct. 14.25 UT: m1=15.1 CCD, Dia.=16", DC=3/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Comet appears less uniformly bright as far as coma distribution is concerned; little in the way of a defined condensation, but some curious deformity appears along the northern perimeter of coma; image will follow]
2002 Sep. 30.53 UT: m1=13.5, Dia.=1', DC=4 ... 28-cm SCT (84x) ... Michael Mattiazzo(Wallaroo, South Australia)
2002 Sep. 29.81 UT: m1=13.4, Dia.=0.8', DC=4 ... 44-cm L ... Werner Hasubick (Buchloe, Germany)
2002 Sep. 29.50 UT: m1=13.3, Dia.=1', DC=5 ... 28-cm SCT (84x) ... Michael Mattiazzo (Wallaroo, South Australia)
2002 Sep. 28.18 UT: m1=15.4 CCD, Dia.=18", DC=7/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Comet maintains a perfectly round and compressed naturep; beautiful concentration with strong central condensation. Little change over previous observations; some high smoke/haze from nearby forest fires]
2002 Sep. 23.10 UT: m1=14.6 CCD, Dia.=12", DC=6/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Incredibly uniform and compact; even brightness the entire span of coma, no central condensation; compact, resembles bright planetary neb. Perfect skies]
2002 Sep. 12.85 UT: m1=13.5, Dia.=0.7', DC=4 ... 44-cm L ... Werner Hasubick (Buchloe, Germany)
2002 Sep. 12.25 UT: m1=13.7 CCD, Dia.=17", DC=7/9 ... 0.31-m SCT/CCD ... P. Clay Sherrod (ASO - Conway) [Very nice short fan tail, PA 15 deg. to 352 deg. comet is brightening steadily and maintains high degree of compactness and condensation; very fine target]
