Image Details:

After 3 months of generally bad weather in continental and Adriatic Croatia, the question arose whether we would even be able to catch this wonderful comet in January. The opportunity was taken with the help of my fellow astrophotographer Jasna Maras from Vrlika, Croatia, who used the window of clear sky and managed to collect enough data, which she then forwarded to me for processing.
Maybe there will be more opportunities in February, but for now we have at least one memory of this one in a lifetime visitor.
