Nice image, also nice to see someone is getting a clear sky.

It was quite short lived,  once the sun had set it didn't take long for clouds to roll in.

That's got it all going off in that one, a great image Clive.

It's been a steep learning curve in image processing. The last (and previously only) comet I've imaged was a slow mover so a simple stack worked fine. This one is moving quite quickly so to get both the stars and the comet to appear as stationary was a challenge - and then to recover the meteor from just 1 image of the 40 was yet another. But it keeps me busy whilst stuck at home ☺
