I was able to view Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise finally on 7-22-2020 thru 7-24-2020, due to clear skies.
This 60 second 4k video includes timelapse, star trails, and other cool stuff.

Gear:  Canon 70D, 3 different lens, each night used just 1.  UWA f2.8 11-16mm on 7/22 @ 16mm, 50mm f 1.4 on 7/23, 70-200mm f 2.8 L on 7/24 @ 70mm

Cool videos! Especially noteworthy: the star trails at the end where the comet is super obvious as the greenish streak :waytogo: !

I'd like to say it's been too long since I've done star trails, just a few years ...but holy smokes there's a lotta "space junk" and stuff cluttering the heavens.

Not so much planes, but so many satellites.

 

Over 10 years of doing this, and at times capturing 1,000's of images each session, then scrolling thru them quickly back-n-forth to identify streaks, ones eyes sees the "crawlers".

 

I'm sure you guys have discussed that here already.

Excellent!

Every sub I took has at a minimum 1 sat! At times nearer a dozen! Northern lights popped up as well on the 24th.
