A very interesting shot Steve, where you able to clearly see this outer halo as easy as the pic might indicate?

Steve,
your shot almost looks like a sci-fi painting! Really neat effects in there. How did you do the twinkle effect?

Thanks lads

The comet had a noticable halo from where I was viewing, however atmospherics may have had an influence. I pushed up the levels and saturation to see if any evidence of a tail was there, and to reveal any fainter detail.

Seanie, the twinkles were put in for effect, and in hindsight there is probably too much, so I have taken alot of them out in a later version of the processing (fresh eyes!!:-) )
