Hi Malcolm, that's an excellent image of Kushida. Well done on getting such a good capture through the light pollution. I was impressed by the extent of the diffuse coma which you picked up. I wish you luck with Lulin when it gets a bit higher. Thanks for sharing the image.  Smiley

Thanks Martin. I checked Starry night pro software tonight and comet Lulin is well placed for me to image in the E sky in early Feb, should be interesting.
