Tak Epsilon160, Tak EM200, Canon 450D; further details on the web link, including processing.
It's all on the weblink, including the three versions -- static stars, static comet, and combination. The sky was perfect and I was lucky to catch the comet from a just after 2am, rising over distant mountain ridge. 10 good subs and lots of digital processing (Bernhard Huble method) led to a good result. If you are interested in full-res version for magazine or other use, let me know.
