Description

Comet NEOWISE imaged on 7/17/2020. 130 30-second lights @ISO 800, 30 darks, 30 flats, and 30 dark flats. Shot through my Canon 600D and Rokinon 135mm f/2 at f/2.8. Every 10 frames were calibrated and stacked in APP, then the stacks were aligned on the comet in Nebulosity4. Stars were removed from each stack with Starnet++, and then integrated into one file. After stretching and final adjustments were done in GIMP, the stars were reintroduced from one of the sets and aligned on the comet.
