Description

Here my only shot of comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE:
Went for a holiday in Tuscany, I left all the astrophotography equipment at home, including a simple tripod.
But the comet has unexpectedly decided to become the brightest comet in the northern sky in the past 20 years.
So here I am, armed only with the camera (My Canon 6D) and some stones to hold it still ...
