Two Tails of Comet NeoWise Photo by Astrophotography Expert Gerald Rhemann at UK's AstronomyNow Magazine

Perhaps the best online photograph yet of the two tails of the Great Comet NeoWise, a photo by Gerald Rhemann, an expert at astrophotography, has been presented at the UK AstronomyNow magazine https://astronomynow.com/2020/07/17/dont-miss-comet-neowise-in-the-evening-sky/ in an article by Mark Armstrong titled "Don’t miss Comet NEOWISE in the evening", an article which also has a useful chart of the positions of Neowise in coming days with respect to the Big Dipper. The home page of Rhemann, Sky Vistas, http://www.astrostudio.at/, has many photographs of comets over the years, but nothing like the split tails of Neowise, which appear to be quite unique.
