Date: April 3, 1996 00:00 UT

The image is a 5 minute exposure with a 300mm lens at f/2.8 and ST-8 ccd camera. The mean time of the exposure was 00:00 UT om 04/03/96. The near full moon and sky-glow interfered with imaging but several streamers can be seen leaving the coma and some dark lanes in the tail.
