Wonderful picture, from a dark site?

I took almost the same picture on 2020/08/06 from my red zone backyard, but with a lot simpler gear (Nikon Z6 iso400, Nikkor 105 mm f/2.5 at f/4, 6x30 sec on a SkyTracker, with a lot more noise. NGC5053 is almost covers by the comet's tail. The faintest stars shown are +14.5

My objective was to test an Az/El pointing and star chart alignment procedure.

Clear skies

Myself had bad weather, could not image it, great you have been lucky.

Thank you hha1.  It was taken from bortle 4.5 sky (average light pollution zone).  Your image is fairly good.  Nothing can beat a nice dark sky, wish I clould go to a darker site, and unfortunately time is running for us to image this superb comet.  Clear skies.   Mario

Thank you Michael.  I had an exceptional July and August (up to now) skies for astrophotography.  The coming week is looking very good to.  I am preparing for a few nights of good skies today at my favorite place... St-Zénon observatory.  Clear skies,

Mario
