About this image

C/2020 F3 NEOWISE with an exposure time that mimics better what it looked like through the eyepiece of the TEC140.  The first thing obvious in the eyepiece is the distinct split tail / two tails with quite a dark gap behind the head.  The head looks laterally extended and not round.  The comet was very low when observed with the eyepiece (26mm and 17mm with a fl of 980mm) 5 degrees high and less.
