Image of Comet Swan taken from the N Gulf Coast of Mississippi on the morning of 11May 2020. The comet was 8 deg above the horizon. The image is a stack of (21) 15sec exposures, taken with a Canon 6D and Canon 70-200 f4 L lens at f6.3 and ISO 800. A Vixen Polarie on a tripod was used for tracking. The comets tail was very dim due to bright moon light and low altitude.
