About this image

A promising comet hopefully to become brighter in the next few weeks.

Though the estimated magnitude is 9.4 I doubt it very much, it was very difficult to find in the field compared to C/2020 T2 (Palomar) which I found easily a few days earlier at magnitude 11.

I took 60 subs, 1 minute each, the comet was super fast. I used in stacking Comet tracking and Sigma clipping in DSS, then processed in PixInsight and Light Room to achieve this result.
