Comet Neowise and Durham Cathedral 12th July 2020

I’m proud to post this photograph by special permission of Andrew Davison.

He took the shot of Comet Neowise from Observatory Hill in Durham. Taken at about 2am  on the morning of 12th July 2020 using a Nikon D750 and Nikkor 28-300mm Lens at 34mm focal length. ISO was 400 and the aperture was f5. The exposure for the shot was 20 seconds.

After this visit, Comet Neowise won’t be seen again for 6,800 years. Get out and see it if you can, it’s a very rare event.

Telescopes available from the Durham Weather Shop.

Thank you Andrew.
