A close up of comet C/2020 F3 a.k.a. “Comet NEOWISE”.
The image is taken next to the motorway in the light-polluted rural area of Sandbjerg north of Copenhagen.
I was out trying my new autoguider with my recently acquired tracker but I suppose that the setup is now too heavy for the mount and the reason only 14 of the 35 sub-exposures were usable… 😉
The nucleus dates back to the birth of the Solar System and is estimated to be 10 km across (so about the size of the dinosaurs-killing comet).
