Lovely DP image but I'm relieved that others are struggling to see the tail visually as I can't detect it either :smiley:

No tail from my dark site either with the 16" dob

Given that stacking 60 30" (ISO 3200, at f/6) only just resolved the tail last night I very much doubt that anyone would see it visually.

With A/V and tapping the scope I can make out a stubby, pointy bit to the halo ( haking the halo slightly

tear-drop shaped?) but no extended tail.

Averted vision here (darkish site) showed a hint to the tail two nights ago: one 15 sec exposure at ISO 800/f4 Nikon 300mm lens shows it as well....I couldn't see it last night, which was v. slightly hazy.

I only just about managed to see the comet, never mind the tail. Another one to chalk off, but nowhere near as impressive as 2011 Panstarrs, Lovejoy or ISON.
