The fog cloud interrupted the observation of the comet this time, but something came to light up the image of this comet. Then there was no second chance tonight, maybe one other night to succeed.

I watched the comet rise from the forest shelters with a few shots. I guess I'll be the only clear night of the week, so here's a stack of 4 pictures from the series, taken with follow-up. Crop 300 mm from the assembly.
