Here is my attempt  at Comet Panstarrs from Monday night after a long day at work.  This was shot with a Apogee U8300 camera and a TEC 140 scope.

 

I only shot 20 x 180 seconds of Lum for this photo.  It was nice to see this comet before the end of the year. Still looking for a big bright one.

Yes, certainly not much in the way of comets over the last few years. That said, it looks like you caught more than just the coma as there appears to be a definite tail off to the right.

 

Thanks for posting.
