Comet NEOWISE 10-07-2020 stacked

Recommended Posts

Despite DSS detecting 12 or more stars in each if the 20 images, it refused to stack more than 8 of them.  In the end, I resorted to using PIPP to do the initial processing, rough alignment and initial cropping, then used IRIS to manually align each image using 3 stars and then finally manually aligned the comet within each image.  Not to sure that I'm to keen on the final colour though.  20 x 0.8 sec, 200mm lens at F3.5, ISO800.  The cropped FOV is 2.2 x 2.5 degrees so the tail extends a good 2 degrees.
