Object/Date:

C/2020 F3 NEOWISE @ July 18,2020 21:11 UT

Description:

Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) imaged on July 18, 2020, from what I have seen I think it was the best date to observe it, the optimal point between increase night darkness and decrease brightness of the comet. The darker sky allowed me to turn up per shot exposure time, which it shows in the result compared to my previous images. More intense tails, especially regarding the blue ionic tail, showing even a second ionic tail. This is the only detail that was missing to fully resemble the Hale-Bopp comet (less brilliant of course) and therefore completely resembling to the my page Cometografia logo.
