Comet C/2020 M3 ATLAS

Comet C/2020 M3 ATLAS
I heard of a new comet (at its closest this Saturday 14 Nov) and, as last night was clear I decided to try finding it. That's Orion as seen from the Southern Hemisphere and the comet off to the left (see PiP) - it's greenish and fairly dim. I should add that this image is heavily cropped (well, it was a 100mm lens after all), but it still looks good full screen.

The comet is the faint green blur about 1/3 from the left and 1/4 down from the top.

Als wir mit dem Segler in Australien waren, hatte ich zu Anfang ganz schöne Orientierungsschwierigkeiten.

Great and the comet is easily found because of the green colour (as usual). I will give it a try as soon as weather permits

Thanks, Fred. It's a not very bright comet. Easiest to see on the PiP, where the arrow points toward a faint green blur which is it. I've also added a note on finding it below the image in the discussion thread.

Hi George
A very nice picture, and well done for getting it. Reminds me of Halley's comet, which was just as hard to spot!
We had comet Neowise this summer, but not visible to you guys..

Best Wishes, HFF, a nice weekend, and stay safe!!

Many thanks for all your comments on this comet capture, everyone. I was delighted that there was a clear night to capture it, even if it wasn't particularly bright - needless to say I'll keep an eye out for any more.

Early this morning I got a good view of Orion (a large gap in the clouds) and succeeded in getting a picture of this comet too. Without your upload I would probably have missed it. Thank you
