This is a second set of images of the comet with the deep sky object using the 80mm refractor. With a half moon interfering, the tail was a bit harder to capture on this night. The field here is nearly 3 degrees wide.

Standard LRGB image, 2 minutes per color. The globular custer is the ruddy object to the left of the comets green head.
