Comet C/2017 S3 PANSTARRS

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.

Hi Gary,

Great image of this comet in outburst. Lovely colour image with plenty of the tail detail recorded. I have saved this image for inclusion in the BAA Comet Archive. It would be appreciated if you would send any further comet images you take to thie BAA Comet Section at
