This is my first comet image. I've gather some LRGB frames; however I am not equipped to process coloured comet.

This image composes of 3x600s in Luminance. Strange enough the single frame shows up more details of comet tails than the stacked one; it is fairly obvious to tell my limited experience and skill. I will attempt to process RGB in later days.

Thanks for looking
