Image Parameter Details
Comments: Comet observed visually, total magnitude estimed 10.1 for 9' of coma. CCD unfilter magnitude is 11.7 for 2.3' of coma.
On unfiltered image seem visible a bright ions tail in S-E direction, but I have noted two star at magnitude 16.0 and 15.9 in the same position of the suspect ions tail. Also, the Larson-Sekanina and the Med Coma Model continue to show a peculiar structure in PA 315 deg.
