About this image

I was intending to image the comet, but was distracted by a nebulous object nearby. This turned out to by NGC 2245.  When the 30 subs were processed i found the comet severely trailed at the lower left.  Owing to its apparent motion (upwards in this view), i processed 8 images to reveal the comet slightly trailed in 2 min.  (The inset is a negative of the nebula exposure 7.5min )
