This image is composed of 40 individual images taken over the course of an hour. They are stacked so that the comet is stationary and the stars appear to be streaked. Taken from Corona del Mar on 12/12/2001 at prime focus through the 10" f/10 LX-200. The image below shows what an individual frame looks like.

Click on the above image to download an MPG animation of the movement of the comet in an hour. I was amazed how fast it was moving! The size is 960k.
