Details:
80 x 120 sec @ ISO 3200, Canon T3, IDAS-LPS, Televue TV-85 at F/5.6.

Taken from a dark sky location instead of a Bortle Red/White zone like the previous two or three images I posted here.

Comet was visible with averted vision in 15x70s but not naked eye. Also, I could not do a short enough exposure to guide on the comets pseudo-nucleus, or I would have went with even longer exposures.

So, 41P is still on the dim side, despite the fact it is closest to Earth right now.
