Comet Lovejoy, tail and trails

Last nights effort on C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy.  ED120 APO, unmodded Canon 1100D, PHD Guiding (on a star).  64 x 2 min exposures stacked on the comet in DSS with 24 flats to calibrate.  Stretched in PS and cropped/tidied up.

As the comet is moving I have “stacked” my images to show the comet – this has resulted in the stars “trailing” in the background.

Quite pleased with this overall.

Picture saved with settings embedded.
