Here is a sketch of Panstarrs from June 10th, as seen through 18" of aperture. It was quite bright for a telescopic comet but nothing more to talk about. No sign of the long anti-tail...

Comet L4 Panstarrs was near beta UMi on June 13 close to its highest declination - my pic from London below shows spread of various faint tails is extensive

Took this image of L4 Panstarrs on 6/24 with the T2wf camera. Panstarrs still shows a very wide and faint fan shaped tail. I hope to get a better image of Panstarrs, soon, without the moon in the sky.

Thanks for keeping the status of this comet up to date.
Weather is supposed to be clear this weekend and I'll be
out trying to grab a new image of this fuzz ball.
