Binocular comet ZTF - 24.1.2023 at 17.30 Kuusamo Observation number 111544

Visibility III / V

Voitto Pitkanen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

As the evening darkened before clouding over, there was a bit of shooting time due to the signs of clearer weather, and the comet's position also became more precise with the stars lighting up in the middle sky. Even so that with the 600 mm lens I was able to locate it directly as a light spot.
