C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) 2020-Jul-20 Dan Bartlett

Imaging telescopes or lenses: Celestron RASA 8"
Imaging cameras: ZWO ASI 183MC Pro (cooled)
Mounts: 10micron GM1000HPS

I forgot the Celestron RASA 8 has a "mirror flipped orientation. This image is corrected. Big apology! Fro previous posted image: "92x15sec subs taken with a RASA8 and the small pixel OSC grabbed this narrow field view of C/2020 F3 two nights before its closest approach to the earth.

Processed solely in PixInsight this one came together surprisingly smooth.

At full resolution you can see the prismatic effect on the stars due to the comet's low altitude (10-15 degrees) A planetary ADC would have been an interesting add-on if they made one with a wide field and a short enough spacing.
