Very poor conditions still. Nothing more than a gap in the clouds. On the original image, a 15 degree long tail is visible.
Observed the comet under very poor conditions. Extremely humid and dirty atmosphere. Comet easily visible to the naked eye and the increased tail length was obvious.Continue reading
Visible through my bedroomwindow in a tiny gap in the clouds.
A short session from 02.00 – 04.00 from my observing site. The clouds made for some nice mood pictures. And noctilucent clouds were present as well.
Another mostly clear night albeit with a strong wind. Before heading to to observing site, I was able to see the comet through my bedroomwindow. Upon arrival at the site I had to use the car to shield the equipment from the strong wind. The comet’s tail is becoming more and more prominent. An hour before dawn noctilucent clouds appeared again.Continue reading
After days filled with rain, the skies finally cleared. Upon arrival at my observing site a big dark cloud obscured the comet but it’s bright tail gave away the location. What a sight! The night concluded with a nice display of noctilucent clouds.Continue reading
Better conditions than yesterday. With the wind almost gone and a much more transparant sky the comet was easily visible with the naked eye.Continue reading
Despite brutal conditions (strong wind and rain), I was successful in imaging comet NEOWISE. A 5 minute gap in the clouds was sufficient to take 27 exposures (1s at ISO800) with a 135mm mounted on a tripod.
Shot from Public Observatory Bussloo, the Netherlands with a Canon EOS R and Televue Powermate 4x using the observatories’ Celestron Edge HD1400. Unfortunately, the seeiing was as we are used to, very poor. This video clip is 8x the actual speed of the event.
A couple of minutes after the Internation Space Station, the Crew Dragon followed in the same orbit. Although I did not see the Crew Dragon, the camera (Canon EOS R and Sigma 135mm/F1.8 ART) recorded the flyby very low over the horizon. Individual images from this movie were stacked to show the Crew Dragon (the trail at the bottom of the image).
