i managed to get some images, first tracked at sidereal rate, 10s each with the asteroid crossing a roughly 0.8 degree field. then i did 5s each. then i tried to program my mount to track the comet, and i was partially successful. the rates were not exactly right, but close. i'm going to try to make some videos.

Look forward to your images/video; I couldn't image mainly due to extremely cold temps. Thx

Here's what I was able to get from around St. Louis, Missouri. It was somewhat cloudy and I'm in a red light pollution zone so there's not much to it.

pfile,

I only did 3x3 because I could only go less than a second binned 2x2 and I figured I'd make a video anyway so even 3x3 is a little large.

Superb images / video Dan
It looks like the asteroid passed amazingly fast ( half a degree per minute ? )
