C/2017 T2: Mag. 11.6 for a diameter of 34 pixels (45".5) and tail of 4'.5 in PA 232. 24x90sec with filter C. The tail may be longer but too many stars prevent you from clearly seeing the end. Interesting is the jet that comes out bright from the nucleus which then curves towards the tail. Although not bright I think it will be a beautiful comet in spring.
