Image Details:

After days of monsoon clouds and needed rain the sky cleared in Tucson AZ. Comet 2023 P1 Nishimura does not clear the adjacent foothills until shortly before predawn, with about 15 min to work on capturing the comet it is a thin window. This is a stack of 5 min total. The comet is bright and the tail is visible in the viewfinder of the camera.
