1. The sum of two 200 second images with a false-colour palette applied to show detail right across the coma. This field is 10' X 12' with North up. Note the unusual feature just north of the bright nuclear region, which is shown in more detail in the enlarged section below.

2. This part of the image, 3' X 2'.4 in size has been scaled up by 2 times and had an unsharp mask applied to show more of the unusual "fountain" of material on the North side of the nucleus.

Taken with a 25cm Newtonian and HI-SIS 22 CCD from Loomberah NSW Australia. Copyright 1997 Gordon Garradd
