Description

Lucky framing with portable set-up - Orion's Belt, Sword and Comet ATLAS (C/2020 M3)
Taken from Crete, Greece. City centre location with light pollution.

Approx 55 minutes total of 30s frames and some 10s frames for M42 core, ISO 400
Modded Canon 450D, Samyang 135mm F2
Skywatcher staradventurer

Very difficult gradient processing and noisy given low exposure time but hopefully worth it for a unique picture!
First time using this portable set-up for me and worked really nicely!
