C/2020 F3 is a shadow of its former self and the Moon is interfering too but the ion tail is still visible along with the wide dust fan. The comet is now in Coma and is passing many galaxies. Last night NGC 4314 was in the tail close to the head and NGC 4724 is near the right hand edge of this field.
