Started my day at 4:30 AM catching Comet Neowise and then imaging the sun in decent skies.  Working on a number of things but here is the most active prom group on that Southeastern limb.  30 minutes in real time, Lunt LS60T DS, Skyris 236M, iOptron CEM25P

Great animation, I was watching that one a lot today. My seeing was terrible and could only use the 24 pans .

But in moments of good seeing the detail was fantastic.

Its been a couple days since I’ve seen the comet , will wait till it’s in the evening sky as it’s very low in the AM.

Cant see it in the pic , could you notice the Ion Tail ?

Thanks BD!  That prom was fun to watch.  That Southeastern area has seen quite a bit of prom activity!  

 

I could not see the comets ion tail, this was taken in pretty heavy light pollution.  I was afraid I would not be able to see it at all but could actually see it with my naked eye once I knew where to look!

Nice photos Warren.  What did you shoot NEOWISE with?

 

I went out this morning and saw the moon then saw Venus, clouds sat on NEOWISE.  

I will try again in the morning.  

 

You do very nice animations Warren.

Thanks Chuck!  I used my Canon 7D Mark II with a Canon EF-S 18- 135mm at 66mm and a 30 second exposure for the comet.
