Image Details:

This is an image of the Comet Atlas cropped from a stacked set of 70 x 150s images at ISO 1600.
Although the sky was clear, the seeing conditions were poor and the moon was full.
I read it's possible this Comet will break up as it nears Earth, so I'm hoping to follow this up with other images for comparison..........British weather permitting!
