All images have been taken with a 15 cm f/5 telescope, CCD SBIG ST-7. The second image shows the brigthness levels of the coma using pseudocolors. The third set of images shows the aspect of the nucleus at different times. It is clearly visible the inner structure of the coma, with hoods and dust waves.
