Did you try Lemmon comet ? new
      #5903261 - 06/05/13 06:17 AM

Hi.

A friend of mine told me that Lemmon comet is brighter than Pannstarrs. Did you try to sketch it ? From my red zone backyard, I'm not sure to see it because my friend is actually located in a blue zone. The comet is in Andromeda not far from M31.

Andre.

I try two night ago but the Lemmon comet was still low in the Northern horizon, I don't succeed yet.
Yesterday I did another sketch of PanStarrs, very faint but still nice and different from weeks to weeks.

Here, on my blog, the last sketch I did of comet PanStarrs, http://astro.aquarellia.com. It was very difficult to sketch, so faint ...

I observed both of them last night. With my 7x50 binocular I determined PanSTARRS to have 8m2 and Lemmon 7m1.

BUT: Lemmon has a short fanlike tail, quite normal. PanSTARRS has (apparently) two tails: a broad not fanlike to p.a.=225°, I saw 4' of it. An a very narrow tail to p.a.=20°, I saw 8'.
Quite interesting: To have a comet which has an antitail longer as the main tail.

You may have a look at the sketches which illustrate this well.

Aquearellia & Uwe, fine sketches! I couldn't see the anti-tail I blame the light pollution.

Beautiful work, guys!!! I haven't tried Lemmon yet (wrong position in the sky for me for the moment) but will try with the binoculars soon.

Peter
