- Hi Filip, Hi All
Yes, we confirm that we have recovered 108P/Ciffreo on July 24.44 by means of
a 0.25m, f/3.4 reflector + CCD (remotely, near Mayhill, NM).
Cloudy weather prevented us to obtain a second night so Your
observation of 03 August 2007 has been precious.
Our photometry show the comet to be close to magnitude R~ 16.2, with a
coma almost 12" in diameter; preliminary afrho data reduction places
it at 50 +/- 10 cm (rather modest)"-.
According to the Minor Planet Center's website "Dates of last
observation of comets" it was last observed on 2000 12 22.46 696
