I spent the last two nights trying to capture some images of the comet NEOWISE, first up at Mt. Ashland near my house, and last night up at Crater Lake.

If any of you have some you’d like to share, feel free to add them to this thread. But hurry! You’ve got another few days before it disappears again. And you’ll have to wait another ~6800 years before it revisits the neighborhood.

We have been having June Gloom in July. It's a SoCal thing with the marine layer.
Thanks for sharing those shots. Really is something to see.

I have a photo of Neowise - it is an inky dinky smudge about three dipper lengths away from the Big Dipper. David & Jason's photos are great. Even though I went out to the lake on a clear night, there was a lot of haze and even more light pollution. I could not see the comet and could barely see the Big Dipper. So, I pointed the camera in the general direction of where it was supposed to be and took several long exposures. Lo and behold, there it was. The camera saw things much more clearly than me.

Murphy, of Murphy's Law ruled here with overcast, And the two or three clear nights had bluff interfering with low view. Or, I simply missed it.
