About this image

Encouraged by Nick James' image i had go last night during a brief clear spell, but the sequence was interrupted by cloud. Even so the tail to the SE is  shown and magnitude of the coma is about 17.0  (Astrometrica, G mag, no filter).   Quite a rich field for faint galaxies in the background. No stacking on the comet in this 10min exposure.  Tail is about 2' arc in this image.  The comet was well place in Draco which was overhead.
