Thanks Wes, I'm sure there should be an application that will adjust the tracking rate to offset the comet position. One of them is HORIZONS for Astrophysics mounts, it uses ephemeris import tool in EQMOD.

I am interested to try the PHD2 comet tracking tool: https://openphdguiding.org/man-dev/Tools.htm#Comet_Tracking

There are a three different ways to provide the comet tracking rate to PHD2.

  • Some planetarium applications, like Cartes du Ciel, can send the rate directly to PHD2;
  • You can enter the tracking rate manually, or,
  • You can train the rate in PHD2 by following the comet for a period of time in the imaging camera.
Looks like the option with Cartes du Ciel should be relatively easy to use.
