Details:
The comet has a tail for sure. I used Maxim DL with rotational gradient processing to enhance this image. Taken from my home in Cherhill Wiltshire UK, using a TMB105 at F6.2 and Atik 314L CCD. Total of 4 hours of images using narrowband filters. The images taken using CLS/HA/SII and OIII filters were median combined on the nuclues, and then merged back into the starfield. The rotational gradient process also merged in.
