Comet C2020 E3 (ZTF) 3-1-2023

Recommended Posts

A couple of photos of the comet from the backyard. The moon was around 84% for the zoomed shot.

The Corona Borealis photo from last Friday, see if you can spot the comet.

And a single exposure from 3.30am today. 

Alot of clouds moving in , and quite hazy.

These are 10 second exposures with astrotracer and Pentax K70 +90mm tamron macro for the Corona shot, and 55-300 Pentax zoom at 170mm for the second shot.





This is a stack of 20x 10 seconds exp from a week or so back.

The moon was at 90%
