The small picture with details within the come was made with a refractor with focal lenght 910 mm and aperture 80 mm and magnification 56x. In the the comets head were 2 arc visible, where the inner one had a bright connection to the comets core. At the beginning of the observation the inner arc was not visible. It appeared during the following hour while the bright bridge was rotationg through the field. Very interesting!
