Comet NEOWISE has been hanging around in night skies around the world for a little while now, and most photographers who have been blessed with clear skies have captured at least one shot of the comet. Beyond getting a good exposure, how do you process your astro shots for the best effect?

Low light means long shutter speeds and high ISOs are needed to get a balanced exposure of the stars, and that goes for photos of Comet NEOWISE, too.

That’s mainly because of how our eyes work.
