Comet C/2020 M3. Brightness m8.

A fuzzy dot and when stacked with reference to stars, leaves a short trail for the ~1.5hr duration.

A little bit disappointed after spending manual marking and comet-referenced stacking, still failed to reveal anything of a comet.

Nice Moon Image. I would have prefer with slighly higher levels though but it's only a personal preference :)

Kinda agree. The picture shows well only in darkness.

The comet C/2020 M3 again.

But far from any interesting object.

But still failed to create a color image. The comet moves too quickly. I should have used an OSC camera.

It was clear skies last night but only got energy and time to shot the celestial at dawn time. Moon closely passes Venus, in Virgo near Spica. And Mercury is high.

Close-up of the twin brightest bodies in the night.

A bit of editing.
