This was an in-city attempt to see Comet NEOWISE. As expected, it was only visible with binoculars, and only if you knew where to look for it. Photographically, it was not very impressive. The upper image is a cropped stack of 32 frames, aligned on the comet head. The lower image is an uncropped single frame out of the stack.
