I imaged C/2015 G2 (MASTER) again this morning, 30 Apr 2015 UT, in less than perfect skies with the Moon just below the horizon and thin cloud bands moving through (only low in the east of course!). Even so, the tail extends faintly to the edge of the frame, an angular distance of 3.9 deg so who knows long it is. Unfortunately moonlight is about to kill whatever faint tail extension there might be so it's probably a waiting game for dark skies again. The background image is a crop at half size showing only the stronger part of the tail.
