Here is a shameless promotion of my YouTube video. https://youtu.be/Ed2qyhFRyFw

 

I'll be back early next week to image the comet at its latest involvement.

Awesome and I love all the little goodies in the background.

 

I only do short exposure EAA and I have captured this comet pretty well but I have never gotten the green glow. Is that something that takes longer exposures to capture??

Wow, superlatives are too weak to describe your post. Thank you. I've already sent the link to a number of fans.

Really nice video!

Are all those little dots moving from top left to bottom right satellites? StarLink or something else? There are an awful lot of them, just curious!

Hi Dave,  I can't see "color" in my light frames while imaging with SGP.  I wait till I calibrate and then finally debayer to show color.  Color then, is rarely balanced by channel, and therefore more processing is required.  You've perked my interest though, next time I'll use "live stack" in SharpCap and see.

Hi Patrick,  Actually those are processing artifacts that would be traditionally be removed when stacked into a single image (see get.jpg?insecure for final stacked).  My scope dithers in a specific direction making any hot pixels seem to drift in the other.
