I shot this right after shooting 18 sub-images of Comet ISON.  Twilight was already approaching really fast and by the time I got 7 images taken, the sky was too blue to continue.   So, this version is lightened up somewhat to bring out the faint details that I couldn’t get because I didn’t get enough sub-images.   It shows the comet well enough, at least.

Below, I have included the star-streaks version:
