7/24/2020 Comet NEOWISE

I captured this image Friday July 24 at around 10 PM with a DSLR with 300mm zoom on my AVX mount at the River Ridge Observatory. I captured about 60 sixty second images and stacked 10 of them for this image. The comet is moving and over the course of an hour it is very noticeable. I tried stacking all 60 but the result looked like the comet had run into an invisible wall. As I write this, I’m trying to stack the sixty in Deep Sky Stacker to try for a still comet and trailing stars and there is only 14 hours left to go before it is done.
