C/2017 K2 PanStarrs last night

Thought I'd try this from a Bortle 6 backyard last night. I captured about 20mins of it before it headed into the trees. You can make out a tail forming to the left of the Coma. Taken with a modded Canon 550d and SW Esprit 100, unguided on a HEQ5pro mount.

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone. I think we'll all be keeping an eye on this one and hopefully we may get another great comet nearer the end of the year. I don't think I would have found it without the help of my GOTO mount and larger sensor, especially being so dim from light polluted skies.
