Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE


Dave Connolly, County Laois, Ireland, 11 July 2020

Dave says: “This was taken at a bog lake in Portarling­ton. As I approached I was delighted to see the comet had cleared the treeline and was casting a reflection on the water. This was going to be a tricky shot, with an unexpected but welcome display of NLCs along the northeast horizon. Behind me

I noted the Moon in its waning glory, plus Jupiter and Saturn.

It was an unforgetta­ble night. ”

Equipment: Fuji X-T2 camera, 50-150mm lens Exposure: ISO 800 f/2.8, 12” Software: Lightroom Classic
