What software did you use to capture pics and arrange into video?

SGP for capture

Nebulosity for batch processing (calibration, crop, star/comet alignment, intensity stretching)

Photoshop to combine 172 TIFs to raw video + logo/info text layer

Splice (iPad) for video title / transition / music

 

Cheers!

It’s dimmer than Wirtanen comet last year. Stellarium told me it’s around 11-12 mag.

Very nice result!

 

Comet still looks a little elongated (top-left to bottom-right). Maybe individual exposures could be shorter (which may require a brighter target, to be fair)?

Awesome little observatory! I've considered doing something like this at my place, but it would probably need to be on the roof since I don't have a deck or balcony and that complicates things a bit. But well done sir!
