Re: Comet C/2023 A3 (Tsuchinshan-ATLAS) 2024-06-08

Sounds exciting and the image is great too! the comet is very elongated, is that due to movement or is it really long and thin?

The 80 looks better to me, better detail (more aperture). Just go with the flow Nic, I've never measured anything, if the image is rubbish it goes in the bin, if not, then at least you have a keeper :)
