his is by far the most challenging comet I imaged both because it is quite faint (the brightest stars in this image like HD25720 or HD25811 are mag. high 8ish low 9ish) and because of the incredible dynamic tail, which some in Yahoos comet group suggest may indicate a rotation period of a bit more than 2 hours. Imaging this comet really makes one admire the incredible images by people like Gerald Rhemann, Michael J├Ąger, Norbert Mrozek, Damian Peach or Jose Chambo.
