Teleskop service 12″ Richey-Chretien telescope, Skywatcher EQ8 mount,Atik 383L+ camera, Astronomik LRGB filters,
Hutech IDAS light pollution filter, Astro physics 0.67 reducer.

My first attempt at comet imaging. 15 minutes of 60 second exposures unguided.

Comet head bright and easy to spot. Started to pick up some of the faint tail detail.

Have to try autoguiding on the comet next time so I can get longer exposures.

LRGB image with 15 minutes of data. 7 x Lum 3 x Red 3 x Green 2 x Blue 60 second exposures.
