    Especially with more power, 100x to 200x, the appearance of the coma 
    with jet was reminiscent
    of a venting booster or water dump.  Extraordinary object!   Dan

    In 25x100 binoculars, the comet's core was bright and elongated, 
    located a
    little off centre within a coma of about 0.1 deg diameter (estimated 
    relative a
    pair of similarly spaced stars in the FOV). The outer edge of the coma 
    appeared
    to be sharply defined; there was no sign of a tail.
