Comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS), 02/04/2020, 21:41-23:41

I managed to capture the comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS). Shooting was prevented by the growing Moon and city light pollution, so I added an Optolong L-Pro 1.25″ filter. The comet is small, the tail was poorly visible in single frames, but it immediately appeared when the frames were stacked.
