Neowise

This is a quick and dirty processing I did just to get an idea how my image came out. I process the image a bit more when I'm not so tired.

Nice shot. Can you provide details on the equipment you used and exposure data.
I was lucky last week to have about 20 minutes of decent weather. I tried the past few nights but clouds seem to appear just when it is dark enough to see the comet. Isn't that always how it works!

I'm not sure what the optimum exposure is I need to get the best shot so I took a series of photos at varying exposure lengths from 1 - 10 seconds. This particular image was taken with a 9 second exposure. I will go through the other images to see if any of them look better. This one looks a bit over exposed to me.

Since my main scope's field of view is so narrow, I took this photo using my ASI1600MC-Cool camera through my ZWO 60mm guide scope.

Nice Tim, I guess this is the best comet in the past couple years?

Here it is in monochrome and I think it looks better this way.
