Fujifilm Finepix S5200 20 15s second exposures at ISO 1600 taken on a fixed tripod mount and stacked with RegiStax.
Photo shows the comet's coma with some internal strucure and just a hint of a nucleus to the lower right of the bright inner part of the comet's coma. Shows more detail than I expect with such a basic set up, and only 15 miles from downtown Boston. Stacking frames with RegiStax greatly improved the quality over that of a single frame.
