Comment : This was the second test with relative auto guiding. It fail, it corrected the speed in wrong direction. It had something to do with the position of the telescope relative the pier, with or without a flip. The Masterflat doesn't correspond to all dust speckles I have on this photo and give an ugly look. Didn't do anything about it this time. The comet is in the center but impossible to see here.

Comet PanSTARRS C/2014 W2, 2016-04-09:

Comet PanSTARRS C/2024 W2, Sweden 2016
Date : 2016-04-09
Time (UT) : 21:30 to 22:23
Image process tool : Siril, Gimp, Irfanview
Processing : increased the gamma a bit and crop it around the comet, 1:1 pixel matching and 800x800 pixel.
Comment : Same photo but processed with more modern tools, push the contrast to just below the dust blobs get visible. Maybe the tail 10 o'clock, very weak. This is a kind of record for me, never seen that weak object before.
