First image is three (rgb) 15 second exposures. Notice the bulge to the top of the head. The image is with a 16 inch newtonion and a home made ccd camera at minus 40 C. The second image is a little more daring at 100 power and three exposures of 60 seconds each while tracking on the back edge of the nucleus. The stars are blooming from over exposure and the offset shows the different exposures but there is nice detail in the tail.
