I spotted a comet with the same hardware and technology as before:
The last time there was a long distance, when there has hardly been a clear sky at night. And it has dimmed more than I thought. The light frames were 16x10 s and the reference background was also 16 images.
Appears as a small bulge in the center of the image. In the single image, I got poorly visible with very strong image processing.
I tried to binocular with 20x80 binoculars without success. And when I saw in the picture there was probably nowhere to be seen, I didn't see any stars in the picture. In the picture, stars stand out near magnitude 11.
Hardly after this I will try to describe this again. And it was visually unnoticed by me when I spent the whole summer like this in the north.
