Greater FL but brighter sky

Forums Comets C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) Greater FL but brighter sky

I wanted to enjoy the comet through binos – and I did, so I didn’t take the scope out. But on getting home I noticed the comet was accessible from my yard. Here’s a single 500ms frame taken with the Hyperstar. A very bright sky at 0247 BST, but you can nonetheless make out the bifurcation of the tail clearly (no calibration performed – I would need a new set of calibr frames for these settings!)
