Well it has been cloudy, raining and windy for most of the week. Metcheck said cloudy for last night but 'whoopy do' it was wrong! I had spent several hours capturing Jupiter and Saturn with my ETX90Ra on a star adventurer - much to Mrs Hawksmoor's annoyance. Having finally got two big planets on one small chip, I looked at my watch and it was just after 2:00 am BST, so thought " I wonder if Comet NEOWISE is high enough to see"? - It was!!! Tremendous comet!! - best since Hale Bopp for my money. Took this image with my Canon 600d DSLR and the standard 18-55mm EFS lens at f=18mm ISO1600 mounted on a photo tripod by the road in front of my house. I awoke my partner to have a look -she loves a comet in the early hours of the morning.
