Date/Time of photo:

21 July 2020


Nikon D7100 - Samyang 16mm f/2.0


I took this image of the well-known comet on the night of 21 July 2020 in Tehran highlands, Dizin. My friend and I were pretty lucky to have a very clear and sharp sky in what was recently a cloudy weather. I saw trail images from other photographers and was inspired to have a go at it and produce an eye-catching result. I decided to select a background and make all other frames starless to make the comet's path more visible in the night sky. You can easily see the comet going on its path through the night below Ursa Major. Fortunately, an iridium satellite passed right through the middle of Ursa Major in one of my shots ! It took me 2:30 hours to capture, and about 5 hours to edit and produce this final image. Here I have attached the exif of the image below. Exif (for all 21 frames):Nikon D7100 Samyang 16 mm f/2.0 iso 1000 25" f/2.8
