C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) 2020-Aug-06 Dan Bartlett

Imaging telescopes or lenses: Celestron RASA 8"
Imaging cameras: ZWO 071MC PRO
Mounts: Bisque MYT

For two nights, Aug5 & 6, I Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE was in the same field as globular clusters M 53 and NGC 5053. And in fact, on the 6th, the comet covered NGC 5053 with its tail. The above image is from that night using the RASA 8 and a ZWO 071mcP.

Moon arose shortly after 10 p.m. where I could only salvage 17 x 180 second exposures.

Processed in PixInsight and still quite colorful.
