2nd interstellar object "2I/Borisov"

Very interesting:

This second interstellar object was first spotted by an amateur astronomer with a self made scope!
Somewhere i spotted the info, that his scope was something like 65cm aperture! Quite big for amateur level? :D

I hope the long time we can examine it, will reveal a lot of information about the origins of distant exo solar systems.
