Yesterday I had some time to process images of PANNSTARS C/2012 K1 I took on May, 19th 2014. This is my first comet and I think the result is not too bad.
At the time of capture the comet was in the constellation Ursa Major and had a magnitude of 9.6mag.
Additionally here is a short animation made of 10 images with 2 minutes exposure each at ISO1600, processed in Photoshop CC. This animation shows the speed of this comet on the sky. Therefore, capturing comets is a big challenge for every astro photographer.
(ATTENTION: It takes some time for the animation to load!)
