About this image
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.
