This comet has slowed down considerably against the starry background, enabling more direct processing of a stationary comet in a nice star filled field. Now at mag 10.5, this comet was at orbital plane crossing tonight, but no trace of an anti tail was seen here. Still, the teal coloration in the head remains and a silky gossamar tail follows.
