We finally had a beautiful morning after a week or more of clouds and fog.

This shot is from about 4:15am when the comet was just about eight degrees above the horizon. But at least I got one . . .

Seventeen out of twenty, 10 second shots at ISO800 with a 300mm f/4 lens.

thanks

I've been using Nebulosity for years for my capture, preprocessing and stacking. I just stacked on the comet instead of the stars.

 

It is my go-to program if I don't want to take the time with APT and APP.

 

Then just curves in Photoshop for the stretch.
