Binocular comet PanSTARRS - 18.8.2022 at 23.00 - 18.8.2022 at 23.50 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 108681

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

This comet had a handsome double tail (albeit with a fast tube under the African sky...).
Well, I tried too, but it didn't work under the Spanish sky.
Maybe too many stars and the half moon had an effect.
I tried to make the view even better by removing the stars.
Unfortunately, it's heading to a more southerly sky, so it could be that it was the last shooting opportunity.
