In this image the comet was going away from Sun and Earth but still kept with a high brightness of 7,5 magnitude and its morphology: a coma 15' diameter, dust tail until north edge of the photo and very faint ionic tail barely visible toward souteast (to down-left). Some small galaxies appears on this field in Virgo constellation, highlighting NGC 5506 and NGC 5507 circa upper right corner.
