Nice ones Tony.

I don't have the "comet scope" on the mount otherwise I would be after 2018 N1 to add to the collection.

Nice Images there Tony.

I really want to try some Comet imaging bored of dust storms on Mars. I tried Panstars M1 some weeks back with my ETX-125 and live stacking with Sharpcap using ASI224MC, but no idea if i got it or not. Is it possible to track on a comet in Alt/Az?
