Yet another Comet NEOWISE photo

Unread post by AstroGeek » Wed Jul 22, 2020 10:32 am

I hope that you've had a chance to see this comet recently. NEOWISE is making its closest earthly approach these days, but is beginning to dim and soon the moon's glow will interfere with the view.

Here is an image that I took on July 15th. Canon T6i on a tripod with 70-300mm zoom lens ( I don't know the exact extent of the zoom for this photo). Compilation of twenty 3-second exposures. Skyglow from Brockton is evident. Sent it into NECN TV news station - They liked it!!

Beautiful job, Steve.

I finally got an image last night, but nothing like this.
