This image shows you the comet Jacques month and a half later of my previous observation. The comet had positioned at Auriga in end of July, moved along the autumnal Milky Way. In that day the comet has reached at about a degree east of Albireo, a beak star of Cygnus. I could catch the comet in the evening zenith skies. The comet has a tail stretched toward east but it's extraordinary faint, you can hardly recognize in this image.
  The image has been cropped with an equivalent f=1200mm. (View angle: 1.06×0.71°)
