Comet 168P, 23 October 2102
Comet 168P Hergenrother continues to be bright, and there have been suggestions that there are fragments in the coma of the comet, but my image isn't high resolution enough to show that.
Here are some other nice images though. From Roland Ligustri (and here) , Gustavo Muller, Roberto Barcellona, and Jean-Francois Soulier.
Update: The comet has split! See here for details.Video here.
