This is a set of 60x120seconds of this magnitude 8.3 comet, which is now starting to move away after a long period of gradually getting nearer.   As well as an imgae of the comet against the background stars, underneath I've heavily boosted the comet only against trailing stars and used a negative to show the parts that seem clearly identifiable of this comet.
