Thanks guys!
Anyone know why DSS makes those streaks when using the "freeze stars" for comet stacking? I tried to stack it again and got the same result.

Nice one! I've run into those streaks when I tried DSS also. I now use Nebulosity instead. It's a few more steps, but I like the results better.
