There's not too much light pollution in that shot, you can try going for a longer exposure time and considering a composite image instead, a long exposure for the comet and multiple stacked shorter exposures of the sky (to keep the round starts), I'm sure you can do it :)
Keep the moon in mind when going to shoot though, although looking for your location, you should be fine past midnight (probably fine at 11:30 too if you can't make it too late)

Here's my attempt:

I need to move to a place without light pollution, I always envy the clear dark skies of others :D

Many thanks for your answer. I mean there was just too bad contrast of the comet. Should have tried a week earlier. I have brighter shots but there you can hardly see the tail at all. I can't brighten that one either or adjust contrast locally or something, there are just nothing to get in the details there. But I will try milky way next time! That one would be awesome to get a nice shot at, and easier to locate :)
