These images show the development of the inner coma region over three nights. The first two were taken with by camera in 1x1 bin mode. Unfortunately I don't have this for the last night so I have used a resampled version of my normal 2x2 bin mode. All use the same Gaussian sharpening params (r=4.13, 20 iterations, 100% strength). You can see the components separating as they move relative to one another.
