Not sure what gallery to post this, but here's a few 2 minute stacked images of Panstarrs from tonight taken between 8.30 and 9.00 before it was eclipsed by my roof top:

Looks great in my phone, will be interested to see it on the computer in greater detail.

This is going to aound daft, sorry, but do you travk it with sidereal rate?

Yes it was tracked using Sideral rates, which seem fine for the two minute exposures. The hardest bit was waiting for darkness and hoping the comet hadn't disappeared behind the roof first. These images were taken between 8.30 and 9.00. Now I know the times, it shouldn't be such a panic next time.
