Binocular comet ZTF - 26.1.2023 at 20.45 Laihia Observation number 111595

Visibility Unclassified

Kimmo Höykinpuro, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I didn't try to spot it with binoculars, for example, but I found it pretty soon with a digital camera. The first picture is taken without tracking with exposure times of 4 seconds over a period of 2 minutes and stack Siril. Another one without tracking, exposure times of 2-4 seconds over a period of about 10 minutes. This time I let the Siril program try to track the comet. Both crops from the original and in all images ISO was 12500, aperture F/5.6 and 300mm.
