Comet with naked eye coma ZTF - 29.1.2023 at 00.39 - 29.1.2023 at 00.55 Kangasala, Sahalahti Observation number 111735

Visibility II / V

Comet ZTF was found again in little Otava. The pictures did not turn out as good as on 26.1. Seeing was not as good and the moonlight has already started to disturb. Still a handsome tail.
The movement during 10 min is distinguished from the two images 0.36 and 0.46.
Let's follow up.
Edit. I processed the images with Deep Sky Stacker. The image now contains 6x30 s RAW images. The comet moved so slowly that the stacking was successful.
