Comet 2007W1 Boattini Roundup

With all the rain and other stuff going on, Comet C/2007 W1 Boattini dropped of the radar after I had a few quick early morning observations. Boattini has faded to where on[y people with serious scopes can see it, but I'd like to post links to some mice images people have made over the past month or so.

This image from John Drummond's Possum Observatory is exquisite, a nice image from Michael Mattizi, another nice one showing interesting coma structure from Mile Holloway. Giovanni Sostero has some nice analysis of his image, and here is an unusual image from Burkhard Leitner of Boattini in the clouds. Gustavo Muler has a nice image of the coma (here as well and dust tail development here), and Martin Gembec imaged the comet at twilight. Another nice image from Burkhard Leitner, as well as this one from Raffa Ferrando and an animation as well. Finally, this image from a few nights ago.
