64P/Swift-Gehrels 2018-Dec-29 Chris Schur

This 9th magnitude comet is well placed in the sky, however on this evening the comet ran right over a bright star and complicated processing. The results came out fine, and this stunning comet has a rich teal color. This is a one hour integration in Luminance and 12 minutes of color data with the 10 inch f/3.9 Orion Astrograph and MPCC coma corrector with an ST10xme CCD.
