Not another NEOWISE ....!

Yes, I'm afraid so.  I took these shots on 19 July. So its taken me quite a time to process them in Pixinsight.  I'm blown away by how Pixinsight can extract the comet from the background stars. But it's quite a long process which required me to view quite a few videos and a few wrong turnings on the way.  But I kinda got there.  

First the movie of the data. Sorry, don't know how to save the movie to repeat.

Then the extracted image.  Evostar 80ED Pro on my cranky old SW EQ5 mount. Unguided.  About 80 subs. 30s duration.  ISO400.

   This comet really needed a longer focal length to do it justice.  Never mind. I learnt a lot.
