Nothing too fancy, but it's the best I could do with the little time I had to image this guy. It was low in the Seattle murk, and I only had about 15 minutes before it went behind the tree. I also had a plane pass through one of frames.
Anyway, here it is!

It's green!

Darn that colorblindness! I always mess up colors. My planets always come out kind of purple. Grrr...:neutral:

Still working on that here.

The green aint due to messing up of colours, its thought that this comet contains high amounts of cyanide.

I tried to see it on sunday night but the haar rolled in as I was setting up. Been raining since
