I've been imaging this comet when I've had a chance through my 14inch SCT but have had a lot of technical difficulties processing the data properly in colour.  I finally managed to stack this relatively short sequence of 35x60seconds from 25th March.  I'm working on some longer sequences from earlier in the week and hope to have something to post in due course.

The data needs flipping horizontally to be the right way round (per Martin's orientation).  I will correct that in the next image!
