Interesting photographs, as I can follow the path of the comet that I have been following and writing about here and in my astronomical diary. Regards maf.

Very nice photos Brian 8)

Can you give us some details of the exposure you used please? I am assuming you had the camera piggy-backed on a mounting? Just a guess :)

regards,

Thanks for the comments. Yes Brian I used the star adventurer mount. They are single exposures of 120 seconds. Some cleaning up done in photoshop.
