Visibility II / V
The comet ZTF has dimmed. I don't even hope to see with the naked eye anymore, maybe max magnitude 7. It has clearly passed the maximum brightness. Now found in Orion and an easy catch with the camera. I shot with the same optics and settings as the previous times. However, seeing was mediocre due to the frost and fog. Shaking the camera and tripod in -20 degrees below zero was not a treat. Connection wires and cables were like iron wire. However, there was still a picture of ZTF and with the DSS program even a little bit of the tail came out.
