Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) Update
I will be following this fairly closely now, as most of the northern scopes are out of action as its too low to the horizon in the northern hemisphere now, but still high in the southern hemisphere. Where else would you go but to Siding Spring itself and the 0.5m planewave at iTelescope.net. This image was taken last night and shows a 3-4 arc-sec tail, still not much more than a fuzzy dot.
