Observation made by Michael J.R. Begbie

Image Parameter Details
Comments: 2010 Oct. 8.94 UT: m1=6.7, Dia.= 14', DC=4...10x50 B...
[More diffuse than before with a large surrounding outer coma.] Comet at low altitude, but improving!

No Sketches yet! I am just doing mag. estimates with binoculars...comet still low at 1 am and featureless in small apertures. Will get more serious as far as you are concerned after mid-month and towards EPOXI encounter.
