Comet Neowise is now accessible in the evening sky. It becomes much fainter than two days ago. I can barely see it with naked eyes.

 

My setup: Canon Rebel DSLR, 1.6 exposure, ISO 1600, Aperture 4. Single shot.

The comet was much dimmer than over the weekend.  Tonight was exceptionally clear, dry and dark.  The tail was an easy 15° in length visually. Still bright and wonderfull, and I was able to show a few of the neighbors how to find it.

You must have a very dark sky and good seeing! I can make out about 3 degrees of the comet tail on the camera. Can barely see it with the naked eyes.undecided.gif

SQM measurement last night of 20.65.  Yea, dark.  And I am working with the power company to fix two streetlights that are way too bright.
