First image is a mosaic of seven original images taken at 4:10 UT (midtime of exposures) on 03/05/97, 11 seconds each with 150mm (6") Maksutov - Cassegrain f/15 + Barlow lens 1.3x and Cookbook 245 CCD camera. Second image is a result of processing of the same images and reveals inner coma structures - envelopes present there (they are not an artefact of image processing), caused probably by rotating jets.
