Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy 34x120s Canon 5D III Canon 200/2.8L @ f3.5 ISO800

I finally found 34 consecutive frames without any clouds and managed to get DSS to Stack them ... Sometimes it works Sometimes it doesn't with the same files and same settings - Go Figure that out!!!!

I sacrificed the core in the processing  to show more of the tail...   that 34 of 55 subs so if I can get it to stack the lot there should be even more detail in the tail... but I have had enough of DSS and it's totally unpredictable and manic antics  for tonight
