About this image

About 1.5 degrees of tail presented in this de-saturated image with Canon 60Da.  After gales the low cloud began to break up so i was able to dash out at 4.30 and open up the obs.  Easily seen in 10x50 bs at 0530, but not "bright".  Significant orbital motion in a minute or so.   I had the C11 on it as well, but not as impressive as David's very nice colour image.
