Cortner Image of Comet 1996 B2 Hyakutake

I have an image which appears to be more unusual than I would have thought; it's a composite of 15s, 1m, and 12m exposures showing a tremendous dynamic range --from the tailward spike to striations in the tail. It seemed an obvious application of TechPan and Photoshop, but I haven't seen anything very much like it out on your and other websites.
