new comet C/2021 E3 (ZTF)

This observation was made, while this object was still mentioned on the PCCP of the MPC. Observation in the morning of 17 march @ 2h07m UT with my 0.4-m f/3.8 Orion Optics AG16 telescope with SBIG STL6303E CCD-camera. 30 unfiltered images of 120 sec each were taken and stacked into 2 groups of each 15 images and has magnitude of about 19.5. The object showed a central condensation with a hint of a short tail on both images, which was visible with the ‘blinking’ function in the software. This comet was later on 6 may assigned as comet C/2021 E3 (ZTF).
