Comet Kopff as imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope on 1996 June 18
With recent news of Comet ISON I felt motivated after noticing this in the archive to process it simply out of curiosity to see how it would turn out. It is uniform in color as far as I can tell and, well, it looks like a comet.
Stars were removed.

Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
