There was an IR cut filter between the camera and telescope. The image is comprised of 31 x 6 sec stacked with Astropixelprocessor and adjust with Photoshop. Comet Leonard was low in the sky into the hazy zone and fading light below Venus. This capture was terminated by a tree branch soon to be removed.
