The comet surprised me. He was now more condensated and showed a bright tail

I measurded the PA angle at the thin longer part of him.

 

9.1mag, DC 3, diameter 7.5`, tail 10` in PA 165°

With the Swanfilter the diameter was 10`.

 

When You have dark skies take a look to this nice comet !

This is the best of all of the little comets for this period.

I suppose that you got a message from Carl Hergenrother ?
