Visibility IV / V
This time in an even darker place than before, with the intention of taking a bigger picture with Sigma.
Immediately upon arrival and looking up, the sight was spectacular - certainly the finest starry sky I have ever seen. The head of the comet was easily and nicely visible on the left side of the small triangle formed by the highest star in Aries, so brightly that I still checked if I could have confused it with something, and I wasn’t, I estimated the brightness of the comet to be about mag4.5.
Unfortunately, the AF-Sigma's focus ring is guaranteed AF quality and the focus didn't end completely, but in the online size it doesn't hurt so much, even though half of the image has been cropped.
With the 70D on the tripod, I also took landscape pictures with the 50D again, the 2nd picture of them coughing.
In the final moments of filming, a few clouds began to appear in the sky, and before midnight the sky was blocked again.
