Very nice! Kudos!
Please tell us how you capture this excellent image. What type of optics, the imager, did you employ stacking (how did you negate the light pollution?)
You image is an order of magnitude better than mine. I post my embarrassing image this evening.
Wow, this may be the best image I've seen so far. What camera, settings, exposure time, and lens or scope did you use?
It is definitely the best Northern Hemisphere image of PanStarrs that I have seen!
Thank you guys!
Telescope: iOptron Mak150 (1800mm, f/12) on EQ5 mount. Camera: Canon 7D, 30 Sec at 3200 ISO. Single shot. Edited in Lightroom. I have to start learning how to stack... Image is not cropped (actual field of view). Took me quite a few tries to get the composition right with the comet and tail in the right place in the frame.
Single shot? I never would have guessed! Thank you for sharing.
The RAW file had a lof of details that weren't visibile straight out of camera, so I used Lighroom to play with histogram, tone curves, and contrast to get more details out of the tail and darken the background. Also there was quite bit of noise due to high ISO, which was mitigated by noise reduction filter.
