Hi Dave- I am impressed with the results of your images. That astrograph has beautiful resolution. your guiding is great, but how did you get Mars to stand still? What is the apparent size of the comet considering your image scale? If that comet is out that far, with the tail that you are getting, maybe it is going to be a great comet. I cannot wait to see your follow up exposures. Thanks
