Comet with naked eye coma ZTF - 28.1.2023 at 22.45 - 28.1.2023 at 23.00 Nokia Observation number 111746

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I got a tip about the observation site in the direction of Nokia and went to check the place.
It was reasonably good in terms of light pollution - although the Northeast is naturally the worst because of Tampere.
I had a really light and comfortable person's equipment with me.
I controlled the tripod wirelessly with my laptop and the paperback also wirelessly with my mobile phone and from the comfort of a warm car :)

Edit: 4th picture is a grainy cell phone picture looking north
