About this image

Not great, I know, but my first ever comet image. Made an old dinosaur very happy!  Clearly scope for improvement though. FOV is about 4arc-min so hard to even find! Not guided and too few frames stacked. Stars saturated. Apart from that, the only way is up! The"4" in its name signifies it was only the 4th comet to have its orbit determined
