Here is Comet C/2017 T2 PANSTARRS taken from my observatory at DAV with the 16RC. Date was January 19th, 2020 at 10:45pm EST. It has brightened up nicely, and will be this way for a few months.

Very nice!
Is 16RC a 16" RC scope? Which camera did you use, what exposure time and at what focal length?
It seems to have moved quite a bit compared to my image on the 22nd.

Thanks. Yes, it is a GSO 16 RC, 3250mm FL.  I used a Sony A7s with a STS light pollution filter. This was a stack of 6 shots of 20 seconds each.
