Last Look at the Q-nuclei
First image - March 30, 1994. Two Q-nuclei and a split nucleus, P.
Second image - July 20, 1994. at T - 10 hours. Both nuclei still show no sign of further fragmentation, although the coma near each is being stretched out along the direction of motion.
Both images were taken with the WFPC2 Planetary Camera using a red filter.
