Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise at Dawn

Comet C/2020 F3 Neowise at Dawn

Back at Mt. Tolmie this morning to watch dawn breaking and of course to see the comet. I was hoping to catch it with some stars behind it so I brought the tracker with me. To the right on the edge of the frame you can see Auriga. The comet is located in Lynx. In the image you can see an extent of about 4 degrees in the tails. I'll leave the closeup shots for another day.
