I had a bit of time to inspect all the image sets, as work does not resume till tomorrow. This is a nicer stack than the one I had posted up earlier (now deleted). The weather was a lot calmer than of late, though there were gusts - hence the wobbly star trails! A nice view of the comet though, I think. It will be interesting to see whether in the absence of strong moonlight shining into the scope tube I can pick up clear tail details. David
