My first image of the comet taken remotely from Australia.

 

 

 

Note the strong green color of the coma.

 

It is interesting to note the reddish color tail in PA 225 deg. (N is up W is right)

 

Another LRGB image from Australia.

 

My last image taken remotely.  Now the comet is visible from my latitude so I want to try observe it visually in the next days.
