I'm going to chalk it up to poor conditions the past two mornings, because NEOWISE was back to being extremely easy to see with the naked eye, sporting a nice long tail....

I tried using Gradient Exterminator this time...it introduced a bit of color noise that was difficult to clean up..

The ion tail seems more prominent than in your previous shot. I'm guessing that is due to getting rid of the gradients. I think it's the right way to go. I'd rather see more comet than preserve sky glow.

You're really nailing the photos of this comet. Very nice. Perhaps I'll just look with my binoculars and not bother with any more photo attempts of my own! And I'm relieved to hear it's still clearly visible--we seem to be clouded in for some time to come up here in Vermont.

This is without GDX..it's a tough call..

Very nice! I actually prefer the color of the second image, maybe that's because the overall image is a little colder in its hues

Considering your limited time window from that latitude that is a bloody good shot. 

 

Quality acquisition and processing.

Excellent job again Dave! I'm so jealous! It's been too cloudy here the last three mornings!

It is a tough call ... both are nice.

 

I've been clouded out here the past few days, good to see the comet is still putting on a good show.

I agree, it's a tough call.
