Update- 20141212 The clouds finally passed and I was able to get a good set of 45sec images. The comet appears green and stellar, not much tail to be seen here...
Update 20141214 - Tried to get spectra data using a Star Analyzer 100, the fuzzy part.
update 20141220 - I can now see the tail in my images with an exposure of 60 secs. A combination of the comet getting closer and it rising higher in my sky.....sum of 14x60 sec images using the EON 80 mm scope and unmodded canon 450D. processed from raw images.
Update 20141228 - Got some good 60 sec subs and a small group of spectra subs. Here is the result of processing using imagej.
