Here is a shot of Comet Neowise (C2020 F3) taken by my friend Kirk Wines on July 12th at 4:32 AM MST (in the early morning twilight) in Tucson, AZ. A Celestron 102mm, F/5 refractor was used along with a 32mm eyepiece on an alt-az mount. The afocal method was employed with a Canon A1200 power shot at ISO1600. 10 exposures at 2 seconds each were taken and stacked.

Nice shot.  Frank I'm heading up to Mt Laguna for my first look.  I just got back from a two week trip to the Redwoods in Northern Ca., and it was cloudy every night

 

Hope you're doing well
