To capture this comet I set up in the very far North East corner of the observing field. The comet just barely rose above the horizon and I only had about 30 minutes to shoot it before the rising sun washed out the sky. The comet was shot during “blue hour”.

Pixinsight and Photoshop.



This is the one I remember you showing me! Great job processing it!
