Happy New Year Everyone, and hopefully this Beautiful comet will brighten your New Year. You can see the bright Nucleus, the nice Green Coma, the (brown) dust tail, and also the faint Ion tail going off to the right. I only got 24 minutes of data before the clouds kill it for me that early morning. you can see some faint PGC galaxies in the background and in the lower right bright 7th magnitude star (HIP 77721).
