This was the second session with this comet. A combination of binos for visual and a bit of widefield photography to capture this comet (DSLR + iOptron Skytracker V2). Started by locating the comet with my binos and rigged the iOptron and DSLR after that. Wanted to get both the comet and the Pleiades in frame. This is my, so far, sixth observed comet.

Well, for just "dabbling" that's quite a shot. The composure with the Pleiades is lovely. I really like wide field images like that.

Thank you! Still quite a lot to improve with editing and well as imaging. But I'm mostly interested in visual astronomy and just dabble a bit every now and then with astrophotography.
