Dear observers, a few day ago I observed PanStarrs from city. I was surprised to see the tail without any problems. Yesterday I drove ti my rural observing site. With my 12 inch Dobsonian I observed the comet again. The sky was so lá lá, SQM only 20,7 in that region. There was much to see!
At the first glance I saw the distinct coma with a parabola like shock wave. At 144x, the central condensations was distinct.
The tail was asymmetric, the eastern part was more pronounced. Observing carefully, I saw two knots in the tail.
m1 was 10m6.
The comet starts to get interesting. It is well placed in Auriga. It will get an binocular object in February and can be reached with very small instrument until Juny. It will never get a real large comet, bit I think it is worth following.
