Stacked frames, merged to show the length of ion tail which is about 7 degress. Head is green, dust tail is creamy (yellow) in the un-stretched images, and the ion tail blue.  Not the best rendering, but shows some of the fainter details invisible to the eye in good transparency.   A  great comet !
