Btw I managed to catch 2011C1 this morning in my comet survey, see the image attached.
Hi Terry,
Nice image!, i see it does have a thin tail which is not visible visually for me. I have read reports of the tail but only with CCD images, it's definitely faint though.
The tail i refer to is in the 6 o'clock position on your pic, but i notice 2 other features at 1 o'clock and 2 o'clock as well, are these artifacts or have they trailed with the comets motion?
Did you happen to pick up C/2009 P1 Garradd in your survey too?

Keep those images rolling!
