Now beaming at 10th magnitude in Taurus, this periodic is coming in and will brighten a magnitude or so more over the next months. Is currently in a rich starfield, making it tough to image properly. This image is three widely spaced (20m apart) images over an hour to help minimize the bright star overlap on the comet.
