I had a go at this early this morning. I only had about 20 minutes before the sky was too bright so I could only get 6x40 seconds in each colour.

Hi George,

 

congratulations to the beautiful image.

Did you use comet tracking in autoslew or did you use sidereal speed and stack the images on the comets head?

 

Best regards from very foggy Ulm,

 

Robert

Hi Robert, I used the Autoslew comet tracking. It works very well!
