Partial Success

This time, comet NEOWISE could be seen.

E-M1 II, Tamron SP 80-210

Unfortunately, it was dim enough that I could barely see anything through the EVF/Live View, so I was focusing by guess. Time to dig through the manual and see if the gain can be increased on the viewfinder...

Same problem kept me from using the mirror lens successfully; I couldn't aim well enough to find the comet at effective 1000mm FL. And while I could get the MD 70-210 aimed, I couldn't get it successfully focused.

Also tried taking some bursts for stacking, but that's going to have to wait and play with the stacking software.
