200 sec exposure North is up in this 15' square field. False colour palette applied to show detail in the bright inner coma as well at the very faint, but gradually brightening, dust tail to the SouthWest. This dust tail has been developing over the past 2 months and extends out of the SW corner of this image. Taken with a 25cm f/4.1 Newtonian and HI-SIS 22 CCD.
