Well done Rick!

I use about the same focal length but I can't get DSS to do a clean combo stacking of comet + stars.
Did you use DSS?

Yes I used DSS, I found the comet was fairly slow moving so I just stacked on the stars. The comet might be a bit blurred but not noticeable. I probably should try comet stacking and check the difference.

Thanks for clarifying. I will revisit my data and try something like that.
