Comet Ikeya–Murakami (P/2010 V1) is a short-period comet with period of approximately 5.29 years first identified independently by the two Japanese amateur astronomers Kaoru Ikeya and Shigeki Murakami on November 3, 2010. Ikeya identified the comet using a 25-cm (10-inch) reflector at 39x, while Murakami used a 46-cm (18-inch) reflector at 78x. Photographic confirmation of the comet was obtained by Ernesto Guido and Giovanni Sostero using a Global-Rent-a-Scope (GRAS) telescope in New Mexico. Both Ikeya and Murakami discovered the comet using manual observation through optical telescopes. Such visual discoveries have become rare in recent years.
