The sky was finally clear last night, and I was able to make this sketch of the Panstarrs Comet T2.

Roy,

 

I like you sketch of the comet. It is still nicely placed at nightfall for northern hemisphere observers.

 

Frank :)

I observed the comet again the day before yesterday with my 12 inch refractor. Magnitude was 8m6 (measured with my 7x50 bincolular). In the real scope I was astonished how less detail there is. The most impressive was the shock front to west. Beside the tail to east I saw a short anti tail to nort. It was not remarkably longer than the coma diameter bit brighter.
