Following rumors that comet C/2015 F3 Swan, last night, did not show any central condensation, we managed to perform some follow up, as soon as the sky cleared, after lot of rain.

The image above comes from the average of nine, 120-seconds exposures, unfiltered, remotely collected with the  PlaneWave 17″+Paramount ME+SBIG STL-6303E robotic unit part of the Virtual Telescope Project. Despite the strong interference of the Moon, we recorded an apparent , faint condensation. We plan to monitor this comet again soon.
