Description

Last night the weather was fine so I tried to spot and image the Comet F3 Neowise. I could clearly see it with the naked eye, which was the first time I ever saw a comet without a telescope/binoculars!
The image above is a stack of 20 5" exposures with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 300mm lens. The guiding was difficult as I didn't have an easy mounting method for the DSLR on my CEM60, which is why I will have another go at the comet, hopefully with a nice foreground, once I get to use my new ballhead-adapter.
