8" LX200 using a StellaCam II camera. stack rate at 256 gamma at full. Optimized, Stacked, and Processed in Registax 4. An IR filter was used as well as a focal reducer. Altuzimuth. Used the stellacam 11 to and recorded about one minute of streaming video and then captured 89 stills using ATI wonder Pro.
My first, quick, less than one hour attempt to capture this comet--my first. Not bad, I think.
