    This is a pretty cool write-up by a semi-retired reporter on Comet Neowise. Yeah, I'm in the article, but I'm sharing it because it was an interesting read and I learned some things I didn't know about the comet.

    Thank you for the kind words sir. Part of the credit in my capture skills comes back to here. We all learn so much from each other.

    I spent 3 nights shooting the comet. I could have gone out 5 nights as I was blessed with unusually favorable weather for July.

    1st night: D750 + Sigma 150-600mm C lens. Using a Skywatcher AZ-GTi mount to track the comet with 40 second exposures.

    2nd night: I started with same setup, but with a 150mm square light pollution filter attached. Had a mechanical issue with the extra weight on the Skywatcher mount and had to stop. I got 1 exposure worth processing before going to backup plan.

    Backup plan was D7000 with Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art lens on tripod for landscapes. I was going to do this anyway alongside the tracked telephoto photos.

    3rd night, I had repaired my problem with the tracking mount. I went more experimental. D750 + 24-120mm f/4 with 2 different zoom settings. Then changed to the Sigma 20mm f/1.4 Art and went to tripod.

    I was also photobombed by what I later determined was the 2nd stage of the Falcon 9 rocket that launched Crew Dragon Demo 2 to the ISS. That was an interesting discovery using Heavens-Above website.

    And to end the night as the dew started to form, I turned around and shot this.
