Thank you, Carlos.

I made another observation and sketch this morning, June 19th. I wanted to see if I could see the ion tail again, so I went with my big binoculars (high magnification sometimes makes faint, extended objects disappear).

I had to make the sketch as soon as the comet rose, so I included the mountain again. Perhaps because of the low altitude, the stars and coma were colorful, so I added color digitally. I also inverted the original pencil sketch on white paper and manipulated the contrast to simulate the slight glow of early dawn in the sky.

Michael,

Another great capture. I really like these very realistic binocular renderings of the morning comet.

Frank

Thank you, Frank--much appreciated. The comet is just a fond memory now--too low for me to observe before twilight.
