Comments: Coma magnitude of R~11.7 within 1.5'. The AFρ parameter spans from 183 cm (48,000 Km aperure diameter) to 315 cm (11,000 Km aperure diameter). It's interesting to notice how the tail has changed its shape since my last observation: on Apr.5, 2005 it was short and bent, today it's narrow and thin.
