Michael - Beautiful photo imaging work on your part! What a spectacular capture and contrast of this comet with the Heart Nebula. I posted your image to all my friends in Facebook. I titled it Comet Jacques Goes Right to the Heart. Amazing photo capture by Michael Jager of Gmund Austria.

Dear all

Thank you for your interest in the image.
My contribution to the ongoing discussion. It is okay to discuss whats real sky shots and where the result is artistic.

For me this debate leads on the question of total exposure time. Especially the ion tail changes quickly.
Therefore, I hold exposure times over 20 minutes for problematic
Halpha is no problem. I can see the brightest part of the coma
and tail on this image.
