Description

C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) from inside Zaragoza (population: 700,000) with a compact camera and no tracking. Thirty-seven 4-second takes, focal length 10.4 mm, aperture 1:1.8. Rather heavy postprocessing; I should have used flats. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the gas tail, so I'm sharing it.
