Started  observing session  at 01.20 U.T. and Continued until 03.10 U.T.  Sky conditions much  clearer than on  night of 5/6 July.   In 15 x 80 Binoculars the Comet  was a   pleasant Golden Straw Yellow. The Tail was in excess of  two degrees in length.  Image has been  tweaked to try and bring out the  tail features against the morning  sky glow. Let us hope  it to  remain  intact and  for clear  sky's  as the Comet  draws away from the Sun into  darker evening  conditions..
