Description

Just a quick 40 images of this region. I had issues with the CometAlignment tool in Pixinsight regarding removal of the stars on the comet stack. Apparently I did not take enough for rejection to kick in strong enough to subtract the star streaks. I tried mitigating the streaks with other methods and this is the best I could do.
