About this image

Its a lovely clear night outside, but my back is bad so... heres one I prepared earlier.

Despite being seen though thin cloud there are distinct hints of a tail. Needed more exposures really...and the keenly awaited new OTA. Original pixels were 3.8 arc secs wide so its rather undersampled.
