Astrophotographer Much?

From the time I saw Comet Hyakutake in 1996 I knew I have to try and capture these events.

Starting with a used cannon 35mm SLR and Comet Hale Bopp in 1997 I’ve gotten a lot of them.

The most recent one Comet NEOWISE is putting on a great show. If you are in the northern hemisphere and have a good view of the north sky in the evening, I you urge you to try and check it out.

Now, who else is into astrophotography? I can’t be the only one!

Ya’ll be good to one another.



I will have to take a look tonight and see if I can see it, does it sit low on the horizon all night?

No in Oklahoma its visible from about 9:40pm until about 10:50pm ish. Low in the NNW horizon.

Well I am more Northern than you so I would think it would be higher in the sky for me, cheers.

I’ve seen it a few times in SoCal. We roadtripped to the desert to see it as a morning object. I’m more of a visual astronomer. But used a little point and shoot for this photo.

It’s too faint to photograph here with the city lights. I can see it, but won’t attempt a photo.


9:30 or 10:00ish. It will be below the Big Dipper. 1/3 of the way to horizon.
