After having photographed the comet twice with my VISAC at a focal length of 1280mm, I wanted to seize the opportunity to capture a wide-angle shot featuring the nearby Mars. Coincidentally, there was also a star cluster in the frame.
Another picture taken with one of my legancy lenses. Sometimes a 80 EUR legacy lens fits best.

Labeling of the objects
On the left side, the overpowering Mars is visible. On the right side, slightly above, is the main subject of February 2023, Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF). Below that is the open star cluster Melotte 26 – Mel 26 or NGC 1647.
