Description

First time processing dust clouds, probably spent more time editing than I did imaging. Used Deep Sky Stacker to produce a stars-only and a stars+comet mode stacked image, processed each photo and layered the 2 images to better portray the nebula & comet. Unguided RGB image. Not terribly exciting image but seeing 64P pop into view was quite a treat!
