Comet with naked eye coma ZTF - 27.1.2023 at 22.27 - 27.1.2023 at 22.47 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 111745

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

Following the comet, I tried to get a better view of the tail with longer exposures.
It is really challenging to take a mosaic of even two pieces from a fast-moving comet.
And there was no other choice but to destroy the stars.
