Nice image of this comet showing that dust trail edge on. With ccd imaging we are seeing more of these cometary features which were only rarley imaged when photography was the main detector. The number of comets imaged recently with “antitails” is another aspect of this more sensitive means of recording comets.

Your comment about seeing the comet in the NW when it gets dark made me smile. It does not get dark here in Tarbatness again until mid August at 58d North latitude! I look forward to seeing other images of this and other comets by those who do have dark skies.
