      No tail, coma diffuse with slight but definite central brightening, does not appear stellar, enhances strongly in Swan Band filter, moonlight affected.
      Comparison stars checked using Tycho-2 data in Guide 9.0; Method= M; Cat= TK

      C/2011 L4 PANSTARRS
      2013 Jan 01.71 UT; m1=8.3; Dia= 3’; DC= 5/6; 25cm L, f:5 (x39) [Chris Wyatt, Walcha, NSW, Australia]
      Moonlight affected, low altitude. Coma has stellar central condensation in periods of good seeing. Coma enhances moderately in Swan Band filter. At x83 the coma appears elongated to the West with a faint extension about 3’ in length using averted vision.
