This fading super comet continues to be visible in small telescopes almost 5 years after is was discovered. Despite now being out beyond the orbit of Saturn, the comet continues to display a strong coma. The image is a combination of 3, 3-minute exposures using a 416xt CCD and a 12-inch Newtonian telescope at prime focus.
