Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) imaged on September 6, 2020, three months after its maximum when it gave us a show. Moving away its luminosity has dropped until magnitude 9 and now it is not observable even with binoculars, but through photography and with appropriate equipment it still retains its elegance with an intense green coma with about 6' in angular size and a dust tail fan-shaped closing to northeast, with one degree in length.
