23 hours have passed since the last observation run

with my best ZTF sky yet (NELM approaching 4.0 mag.) - and yet the comet was only visible clearly with averted vision in 11x70 binoculars and has become pretty small even for the camera. Here are three shots with the Panasonic DMC-FZ300 around 21:40 UTC on 7 February 2023 from Bochum, Germany, all at max. zoom (cropped somewhat) and with f/2.8: 3.2 seconds at ISO 6400, 4 seconds at ISO 3200 and again 3.2 seconds at ISO 6400 - the length of the trails refuses to correlate with the exposure time, obviously some weird tripod motion / image stabilizer effects at play. ;-)
