Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF

Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF

Comet C/2022 E3 ZTF taken on 1/15/2023 at about 6 AM (East coast USA) with the Vespera telescope from a normal bortle 4.5 location but with clear conditions but a 43% moon out partially washing out the sky. The comet was around 60 degrees altitude at the time of the image.
The image was 10 minutes 40 seconds consisting of 64 10-second exposures at gain 20 db. No post-processing. This image was straight ouf of the telescope.

I was also able to visually view the comet with my Canon10x42 IS binoculars but it was just a faint smudge.
