Comet with binoculars...

Recommended Posts

...excellent view of E3 ZTF this morning 21st from the northern Yorkshire Dales.  SQM 21.3.

Canon 15 x 50 IS.

Pale green wedge with coma.  About 1.5 degree alongated.  Easy find in a dark sky using Bootes asterism as a guide. 

Good hunting,  Paul.

Fir the next week or so the comet gets closer to the north celestial pole so it's actually visible all night, the lowest it gets is about 20 degrees in early evening. I had a look this morning and it looked as bright as m13, so definitely visible with binoculars from almost any sky.
