15 x 60 seconds imaged last night. Quick process stacked on stars. I will do some more detailed images over the weekend. I need to get some flats off the system at this res. The tail seems to be showing some nice detail now.

Great image although you may have caught this comet at its brightest. Latest reports are that it was much fainter last night.
