Binocular comet ZTF - 21.1.2023 at 18.00 Strömsö, Vaasa Observation number 111497

Visibility II / V

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

After weeks of cloudy weather, they promised clear skies, yay! It was, but then a thick fog started to bother me, when there was nothing else I could do. I was a bit surprised myself when I managed to get through it with the second attempt to hit the 200 mm comet. I described the series for stacking, but I can hardly stack them. How nicely that would have really stood out against the black sky. Now I had to stop, when I didn't even want to separate Otavaaka in the sky anymore. In one image, the comet was greeted by a spinning satellite. I'll put it as the main image. As a bonus, a flash picture of the conditions on the ground.
