Galactic Encounter

I was starting to worry this image would not happen with all the thick cloud passing, but I decided to wait it out and luck was on my side this time as clouds cleared.. Comet C2018 Y1 Iwamoto making a galactic encounter with M95 and M96.. What a treat it was to see the first photo on the camera.
Iwamoto is a fast pacing comet its hard to keep the coma from trailing during longer exposures.
