The image above comes from the sigma combination of 10, 180-second unfiltered exposures, remotely taken with the Celestron C14+Paramount ME+SBIG ST8-XME robotic unit available as part of the Virtual Telescope Project facility in Manciano. The resulting master frame was carefully processed to show details in the inner coma.

We will continue monitoring comet 12P/Pons-Brooks over the next weeks.
