Description

From a blistery cold -17C morning where nothing seemed to be working right (even the computer mouse died),  here is C/2022 E3 (ZTF) from 2023-01-18.  Again grouped of 15 x 45 sec exposures were combined and "max" function in PI to prevent the smoothing of the averaging during integration.  Comet is moving quite quickly and the pace will pick up!
