A close-up of Comet Atlas C/2020 M3..

Back in November The Comet’s Peak Brightness was at 8.2 magnitude, as it swept through the constellation Orion.

Captured with my old orange tube C8 Telescope & Bisque MyT mount, a QHY183C Cooled color Camera, 16 minute exposure (8 x 2 minute subs)

From my backyard observatory in Dayton, Ohio 11/05/2020 02:21 U.T.

The comet is still visible in telescopes, but has faded a bit to about 9th magnitude, and is currently moving through the Constellation Auriga.
