C/2012 K5 (Linear) is a fast-moving comet around 9th magnitude (total brightness).
This image was taken with Celestron Edge HD 14" and Apogee U16M with 4x 5minute exposures. Guiding was performed with an 80mm guide scope using MetaGuide and FlexRX to shift the stars at the expected rate of the comet as well as compensate for flexure between the imaging scope and the guide scope.
