Binocular comet ZTF - 27.1.2023 at 01.17 - 27.1.2023 at 01.21 Siikalatva Observation number 111622

Visibility I / V

Jarmo Kalaoja, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

The comet was visible in the binoculars today for some reason even a little weaker than at the beginning of the week. In the freezing weather, this time I tried shooting with the camera's burst shooting until the telescope was completely fogged up... The results were a preliminary experiment with Deep sky stacker stacking and a small improvement of the brightness after that, not very good processing programs installed on the computer yet. I tried a hundred tails, it's hard to tell if the hemispherical veil shown in the picture is real or the result of image manipulation.
