High clouds and dew plagued my imaging session on this night. My dew heater’s power supply failed right at the start, too.
For this full field image, I took 40 sub-images of the comet between 01:49 and 03:09 UT and another 31 subs between 03:19 and 04:21 UT . I only lost 3 subs to guiding problems, despite the clouds.
I thought all the clouds and dew problems I had would ruin the chances of getting a good final image, but I guess I was wrong. 🙂
