Comet C/2014 E2 (Jacques) on Jul 17 2014 predawn

I was quickly clouded out before I could image more cloudless images of that comet. The twilight was swiftly brightening as well.

Processed in DeepSkyStacker and Fitswork and Photoshop.

50D + 200mm f2.8 lens stopped down to f5.6, mounted on Astrotrac.

I visually observed the comet via my 8" Dob. Easily detected, coma bright and circular, ~2' in Dia., strong central condensation, DC = 7, m1 = 6.6.
