My 33rd image of L4 Panstarrs is attached, showing the first two degrees of the orbital plane spike, as of one hour ago. Taken despite a very bright moonlit sky. 20130526 Martin Mobberley

ccd image and observation Despite a nearly full moon in the sky, 20-minute stacked exposures were sufficient to trace the anti-tail to at least 8.0 degrees in length on 2013 May 25.97, just 1 day before our line-of-sight crosses this comet's orbital plane. 20130525 Richard Miles

ccd image and observation Taken through an Astrodon V filter as part of a long-term photometry project. The project started when the comet was at 16.3 degrees solar elongation. In some ways this comet is untypical/unusual in that the brightness of the inner coma is declining in a very steady fashion with zero evidence of outburst activity. The very extensive synchronic bands seen soonafter perihelion were also very evenly distributed / symmetrical and these two characteristics may be related to the spin rate and direction of the polar axis (obliquity) of its nucleus, as well as to its composition. Orbital plane crossing is scheduled to take place some 4.0 days after these images were taken. 20130522 Richard Miles

ccd image and observation A clear night with bright moonlight washing out much of the sky. The orbital plane spike of C/2011 L4 PANSTARRS is very impressive now as seen in the remote telescope images already posted. Here's a mosaic shot of the spike from my home in Selsey, UK. 20130323 Pete Lawrence

ccd image and observation My 32nd image of L4 Panstarrs is attached, showing the first two degrees of the ludicrously long orbital plane spike. Taken in near full moonlight. 20130323 Martin Mobberley

ccd image and observation In this image, i wanted to compare different dates to see the changes in the appearance of the tail, of the comet, in time. apo 106/530 ccd STL11000 600sec field 155x200 20130522 Rolando Ligustri

Here is a shot of C/2011 L4 taken this morning. Despite the moon being up at the time the anti-tail feature really is looking quite impressive. It rather reminds me of a sun pillar. FSQ106 with STL-11000M. LRGB. L: 4x3mins. RGB: 1x2mins. 80% illum moon present 20130521 Damian Peach

ccd image and observation My 31st image of L4 Panstarrs is attached. The spike is predictably intensifying in appearance as orbital plane crossing approaches (six days to go). This was a bit of an experiment with LRGB imaging. 20130521 Martin Mobberley
