Observer: Bob Yen
Location: Mojave Desert, California
Date: March 20, 1997

This is a long telephoto shot, using a 6x7 camera on an AstroPhysics 610mm f6 lens w/field-flattener (Traveler). The ion tail is very strong , and extends out of the frame (in spite of moonlight) -- at least 6 deg. The dust tail has become more intense (brighter and narrower), but still has an outer *fan*.
