The comet C / 2018 N2 (ASASSN) was filmed on the first night of the October 2020 work. The comet was discovered by the "All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae" (ASAS-SN) search program from July 8-11, 2018 images. The comet is on a hyperbolic orbit and is already leaving the solar system and continues to dim. We’ve filmed it earlier on the second night of the January 2020 work.
