Details:
Spectacular easy naked eye comet, appearing as a huge 1 degree misty cloud to the eye. In the telescope the view is breathtaking! And it is a photographers dream. Too big to fit in a conventional telescope, here I imaged it with a small short focus refractor to get the starry field and the gorgeous teal colored comet. So exciting!
