Morning comet ZTF (with DSLR and freezing fingers)

Recommended Posts

Here is my effort from this morning, 6am. Single shot with Canon 250D and Sigma 200mm F2.8, 25 seconds at 800 ISO, then tweaked in the photos editor. Used my trusty EQ5 with a RA motor for basic tracking. Tried stacking but the comet is too fast now and gets blurred after only a couple of minutes. 



Looks great with binoculars too!

How do you stack on the comet in siril?

it has a comet alignment function, or you could try one star alignment and select the core of the comet. This is my poor attempt, I hope to get more data.
