Olympus C-750 Digital Camera mounted on tripod.
Through light pollution,Moonlight,clouds I managed to take 3 exposures then stacked them with Registax plus I had to really go with contrast! Images were all 16sec exposure at 35x zoom and f/3.7 at 400 ISO. You can **just** make out the coma on the star.
