Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE
It was clear at home so I packed all of the astronomy equipment, including the Sky-watcher 200 scope into the car and headed up to the top of the Sheriffmuir Road hoping to spend some time getting some detailed images of the comet with a good polar alignment.
On arrival conditions were disappointing with a thick patch of cloud sitting to the north. The comet was hidden and I stood beside the car for 15 minutes waiting for it to clear. Eventually a reasonable gap appeared in the clouds, the comet was revealed and I rapidly started setting up camera and telescope.
Unfortunately, during this time further cloud built up in the west and rapidly moved in to obscure the view. I managed a few widefield images of the comet and a quick look at it with the 25mm eyepiece on the telescope (the comet filling the entire FOV) before the views were obscured.
Saturn and Jupiter
Before the cloud could envelop the southern sky I turned the 200mm scope onto Jupiter and then Saturn. Both presented beautiful views. Jupiter's bands could be seen with all four largest moons arranged in a neat line. Saturn had less detail but the rings made for a captivating sight before clouds rolled in.
