Reports from Geisei Observatory <March 29, 2004>

• V5114 Sgr and other comets
    This is a new observation following the previous report on this nova. The magnitude was 9.6 at 4 am on March 29, not much change since the observation on March 25. I used the 60cm reflector and was able to capture many faint stars due to the clearer sky.

    C/2004 C1 (Larsen) faded to 20.5 magnitude on March 28.
    P/2004 F1 (NEAT) was at 19.0 magnitude.

    I will try newly discovered C/2004 F2 (LINEAR) and P/2004 F3 (NEAT) on the morning of March 31.
