Nice, is it possible to make both the comet and the stars stacket as with DSS Inside AA8 ?

See the previous post about NGC7380. I think the way to do it is too remove the stars from the sub exposures with the Starnet plug-in, stack the comet, then add the stars back in, after masking out the comet from the subs. I haven't tried it but it should work, at least in theory.
