deeppaul589very amazing. good work
I used a gorilla pod to hold my camera stable.
2hrs of shooting would give good results in my opinion. Had to wait for moonset.
Camera settings : 48MP RAW
Shutter : 32sec.
ISO : 200
Focus : Inf
WB : Fluorescent
Shots captured : 360 (but used less in for final image)
Decided to go with RAW, for better editability. But may be also possible JPG.
After capture comes lot of editing. There were non uniform bright patches due to surrounding light. Batch processed the images in Lightroom. There were too much noise in the image which makes it very difficult to edit, settled with an acceptable reduction.
Exported the imaged as JPG. And opened in Photoshop as layers. Used Lighten blend mode to get the effect.
Adjusted the opacity of layers to get the comet effect.
Final result :
