Comet Leonard at Perihel, but already quite a bit darker, thus reducing overall image quality. In addition some processing artifacts. So this is the last one, thanks for indulging me.
Again, bad collimation raises it's ugly head, but meanwhile one of our team is on-site in Namibia and able to fix a few things.
