I was able to image this comet again this morning in a bright dawn sky with some haze at the low altitude.The sky background was variable. The comet seems to be remaining steady at 12.3 measured in Astrometrica (9 pixel radius at 1.4"/pixel). The tail extended out of the field of my C14. Here is some astrometry COD I81 OBS D.Buczynski MEA D.Buczynski TEL 0.35-m Schmidt-Cassegrain + CCD + f/6 focal reducer ACK MPCReport file updated 2018.11.19 14:52:21 AC2 buczynski8166@btinternet.com NET UCAC-4 CK18V010 C2018 11 19.23115 13 44 13.69 -00 47 15.4 12.3 N I81 CK18V010 C2018 11 19.23490 13 44 16.18 -00 47 14.7 12.3 N I81 CK18V010 C2018 11 19.24093 13 44 20.40 -00 47 13.0 12.2 N I81 CK18V010 C2018 11 19.24470 13 44 23.11 -00 47 12.2 12.2 N I81 ----- end -----
