Weird Wild

Here's Comet Wild from 01:30 20/2/10 looking particularly weird. There are two tails, one of which is curved in a strange way from this line of sight. The sub-frames looked like the coma was smeared out left-right. I fiddled a bit with the processing to reveal more of the faint tail at the expense of the coloured background, which is probably the result of a light pollution gradient, or an out of date flat field. It is 9 x 30" pics on the 20". Wild is visible in the morning sky in the constellation Virgo.
