Comet Panstarrs C/2017 T2. Imaged using the C8 and Starlight Xpress H9-C, a sequence of 30 sec exposures covering around 100 mins. There is a bit of a jump near the end when I lost it due to cloud, jumped to the Crab nebula for a time and then came back. The movement of the frame is due to the dithering I had enabled. In hindsight it would have been better to turn it off.

And here is a stack of 38 frames.
