Comet Jacques  C/2014 E2
in the evening sky

 Here I present to you two images, both taken on the same night. The first shot is a total of one hour with the 12.5" f/5 Newtonian and is aligned on the comets motion, showing the stationary comet in an incredibly rich Cygnus star field. The comets color has now begun to shift towards the blues, and for the first time the blue frame was brighter than the green one. This yields a "teal" colored comet, with only a hint of dust tail to its left side.

The second image is the same data combined Median, so that the stars are greatly suppressed to yield the dimmest details possible in the comets tail.
