Scope = 140mm  FL-1050 with ASI071 

 

The 5 second video spanned 23 minutes with a capture every 10 seconds. The moon was too bright on 2/17/2019 to capture a worthwhile still image.

I think I see some debris coming off of comet.  You might try zooming in to see.  If you don't have a way to do that Virtualdub can do that. 

I made a video to make it easy to figure out Virtualdub here
