Amateur astronomer shares photos of Neowise comet

Many of us are looking to the sky at night to catch a glimpse of the Neowise comet, which will be easiest to view on July 22.

Here is an article from astronomer Gary Boyle which we shared online last week.

And here are a few photos from amateur astronomer Clive Edwards, who took the photos in the Dalkeith area.

Clive Edwards says he used a Canon EOS 6D with a 24-105 zoom on a star tracker mount (to prevent the stars and comet from trailing). The two shots with the cornfield were between 60 and 90 seconds at ISO 1000, f5 and a focal length of 60mm. I used a red flashlight and painted the corn during the exposure – that’s why the stalks appear red.
