Animation with the levels set dim. I did this hoping that any brightening of the core would be more easily seen. I think I can see a little brightening of the comet with this version.

Larger animation with the levels set bright.
The animations were put together from a sequence of 1 minute exposures taken over approximately 2 hours. They were taken with a Takahashi Epsilon 210 F/3 astrograph and SBIG STL11000 camera. The stationary fuzzy object to the left of the comet is a galaxy.
