Another attempt at the comet.

The size is impressive (nearly fills the field at 50mm focal length) but the dust tail seemed slightly fainter than it was. That said, at the comet's current distance that dust tail must be immense. 

Got a clear ion tail and my first hint of green round the coma.

No glow worms tonight. Too cold presumably.

You've captured the ion tail really well Grant. Amazing image.

I rather wish I had a lens of about 24mm focal length. From what I hear the tail is 20ish degrees long...
