Here is another look at Comet Faye 4P.
This was taken with a 14 inch Schmidt Cassegrain with a focal length of 3910mm. The image was taken with a 5 minute exposure using a CCD with 3 megapixels.
As often happens with comets, the lesser power gathers more light from the tail. Here is a shot taken with a 85mm APO refractor with a 480 mm focal length.
The image is not as good and clear, but the tail shows up better.
Faye was discovered in 1844 and has a short 7.5 orbital period.
