Here is my sketch of T2 PANSTARRS from last night's session.  It was fairly faint but I was just able to make out a tail.  Another member of the astronomy club got it in his scope and graciously let me knock out a quick sketch at his eyepiece.  That's what I call team work!

Chiron,

 

Now that I've seen this comet for myself at 71x, I can say that your sketch is a pretty good rendering of its size and appearance at low power.
