I’ve been wanting to shoot some sub-images of Comet Lovejoy at relatively low ISO’s and for at least 15 minutes.  Here’s one that was shot at ISO 200 and boosted up a bit with some curves manipulation in PS.  So, this is a representation of old-school, one-shot imaging like I used to do back in the day with film.  You don’t have much in the way of post processing since the image looks fairly nice without that sort of thing.

Update:

Here’s the preliminary image from the data captured in the same session as the above:
