Comet C/2020 F3 - NEOWISE (Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer). This is the first comet I've seen live and I must admit that it's impressive. It is worth looking at the northern sky around midnight. You just have to hurry because at the beginning of August 2020 the comet will move away and you won't be able to see it without the telescope.
How to photograph a comet?
The camera should be mounted on a stable tripod and use the remote shutter release (e.g. from the application on the phone) or choose the option to delay the release of the shutter e.g. 5 or 8 seconds. This is very important because it prevents the camera from shaking. Focus is best set manually to the horizon. Parameters: aperture 2.8 or 4.0, ISO 800 or 1600, time from 4 to 8 seconds, focal length 80 mm. At longer times and at this focal length, the stars may be blurred.
