Two images taken on 3 March. The comet was very impressive, an outstanding object. The moon was above the horizont, but without interference. The first image show the proper motion of the comet, the second one uses pseudocolors. Dark subtraction: done. Tecnhnical information on the pictures. Location: Ceccano (FR) Italy, 231 meters above sea level; light pollution. All these images have been log- scaled using a software done by me. They have been taken with a SBIG ST-7 CCD camera.
