hi all,

 

here a nice conjunction between comet and the open cluster NGC 957 ( 7.6mag ) in the constellation Perseus. 

 

The next nights are interesting because C/2017 T2  will travel next to h&chi ! 

 

 

Distanz comet - NGC 957 was 32`.

Nice sketch of this comet.

I don't know if you agree with me but I feel that this comet is a variable one, for me tail and coma size are up an down, we never know what will be shown the next night.

Nice sketch.  I had to recheck the forum I was in.  First thought I was looking at a wide field image.
