Binocular comet ZTF - 26.1.2023 at 23.00 - 26.1.2023 at 23.59 Kangasala, Sahalahti Observation number 111603

Visibility II / V

After three weeks of clouds and fog, the sky finally cleared. Comet ZTF stood out perhaps to the naked eye, or at least there was something extra under little Otava.
A handsome greenish comet stood out on the camera and tracking stand.
Edit. I reprocessed the image and made the tail stand out better.
