This is a picture that I processed from a friend of mine Jimi Lowrey 
when we were shooting night skies together.
He is testing out his new Nikon 58mm f/0.95 Noct. I am shooting a 24-70mm f/2.8 and it is simply incredible to see the difference that shooting at 0.95 vs f/2.8 (based on help from here it is just over 3 stops of light)
The yellow tail is the dust tail pointing at sun , the blue straight tail is the ion tail

Nikon Z6 and 58mm @ f/0.95 - 3 sec at ISO 6400
This image is not cropped
He has only had it for a week - so at some point I will try my luck with this monster of a light gathering lens

Really, really good image. I like that you caught the "ion tail".

Very nice!
Super crisp image of Neowise and dual tails.
Luckily you got it just before the cloud layer!
A bit of noise visible primarily on the land portion...but not to bad for ISO 6400

Very nice definition of the two tails, and luck with the clouds!  Sounds like a very interesting lens.
