Homemade 20inch F4 Newtonian AltAz in a dome StarlightXpress MX7
Image was 21 x 10 second exposures (210sec total) Sky conditions were poor, but the comet was quite easy to see Visually using my 16inch dobsonian next to the dome, the comet appeared slightly green with a copper centre. First attempt at stacking, I have 280 to go through so hopefully I can do better.
