A very nice image of comet 2013 US10 taken remotely today (18th September, 2015) by Martin using the itel Siding Spring 20-inch Planewave telescope at f/4.4.

This is an LRGB of 180:60:60:60 seconds. The comet was in Lupus and at approx. mag 6.

The light in SW corner is glare from Alpha Lup, just outside the field.  Martin also notes that a crescent Moon was not far away......
