Comet NEOWISE at Lone Tree Hill (July 9, 2020)

Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) with a lone tree on the Alberta prairie on the morning of July 9, 2020, with ground fog in the immediate foreground. Some wispy noctilucent clouds are visible closer to the horizon but did not obstruct the view of the comet this morning. Thus the comet was easily visible to the naked eye well into twilight.

 

This is a stack of 14 exposures for the dark ground to smooth noise and one untracked exposure for the sky and clouds, all 5 seconds at f/2.8 with the 85mm Rokinon lens and Canon 6D MkII at ISO 400. Shot from “One Tree Hill” near home in southern Alberta. Moonlight from the waning gibbous Moon illuminates the foreground.
