montage image of this comet taken on Dec 13.5UT. Image size is 65 x 102, and consists of 9 x 90sec images along the tail, using a 40cm SCT. Minimal effort has made to match the brightness of the adjacent images; indeed the images closest to the head are of reduced density to better show the region near the coma. The length of the tail as evident in the image is almost two degrees with it clearly extending beyond the edge of the image. COPYRIGHT David Herald
