Comet NEOWISE in white light

Here is Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE, taken with the KPO Reflector on July 19th, 2020, but this time it was taken with no light pollution rejection filter, so this is true color / white light. There was no color processing done on this image, aside from standard finishing.

Note to self: do not use the Astronomik CLS LPR filter on comets in the future!

See the previous Digital Image of the comet for basic information about the comet itself.
