Details:
Finally clear sky, so I took a 30 minute photo with my main telescope: a 20-inch F / 8 Ritchey-Chretien, reduced to F / 4.2. The perspective from the Earth, of comet in its orbit shows us the slightly curved dust tail along its orbit, and a tail of really tiny, slender and straight ions in the opposite direction to that of the Sun, at about 90 degrees clockwise rotation from dust tail. Tghe coma is about 7 magnitude of deep green. The show starts.
