Description

This comet is inbound to our neighborhood. Thought I'd give it a try to capture an image. The image is only a single sub at 120 sec with a Lum filter.

Even with a 92% Moon and my tiny telescope you can see that the comet is sporting a tail.

This is a uncalibrated sub with only minor PixInsight and Lightroom work
