Great capture! would i be correct in assuming that this comets composition is very similar to Wirtanen, based on their colour as they vent off matter?.

Cheers Dave, it cleared lovely up here all night. Got a lot of data on it in the early hours, I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was....  Around 50 degrees when  due south, Lots better than when I imaged it last..

Good shot, I too hope to get it soon - long time I have not searched/imaged a comet.
