Comet NEOWISE in the evening

On Tuesday evening, 2020 we drove to Coupeville and set up the camera near some picnic tables by the wharf, overlooking Penn Cove. At 10:30 pm, it was still too bright to make out the comet, but by 11:00 another person spotted it with binoculars. We had the tracking mount aligned, but slewing to the comet was challenging due to its position low in the north. With the help of another couple, we finally got the comet in the frame of the camera and took several shots. Here is the result of combining four 30-second exposures.
