Comet C/2014 E2 (Jacques) on local 2014-Jul-29 predawn

suburban sky, serious light pollution, so I can't get the plasma tail clear, just some hint there.

Transparency decent, almost free from clouds, at least by visual inspection.

Images stacked in DeepSkyStacker, further processed in Fitswork and Photoshop. Photometry to be done, time permitting.

I was using the most primitive shutter release control sitting next to the setup with a cell phone in hand as a timer. So I couldn't make visual brightness estimate thru my 8" comet-seeker before finishing imaging the comet when the twilight had been influential and obvious.
