Telescopic comet ATLAS - 16.4.2020 at 23.00 - 16.4.2020 at 23.30 Hämeenlinna Observation number 90024

Visibility III / V

Pertti Seppälä, Hämeenlinnan Vega

Good to shoot almost overhead.

There was a rush when shooting colors separately. The total exposure time was almost half an hour. Because of this, the head of the comet has stretched slightly into a sharper tip as it moves in the image.
