COMET NEOWISE 2020 (C/2020 F3)
This was a nice suprise.
Been waiting years for a decent comet opportunity. These were shot in Exeter
UK, in the evening twilight looking NNW, difficult to photograph at first as
the comet was still close to the Sun and set quickly with it, but the saving
grace was it was bright.
As the days went on, it started to
dim significantly as it moved further away from the Sun, but also rise
higher in the evening sky. I had to wait longer into the evening (and for
clear skies) to return to the same country lane for a few more goes where I
finally managed to get the Ion tail!
Kit: Nikon D610
with Tamron 24-70mm F2.8 Zoom (at 70mm), various ISOs and exposures tried. Adjustments in Lightroom.
