Continuing my observations of Comet Johnson (2015 V2) it is about 8.4 magnitude now, and other sources suggest a split in the tail of dust and Iron tail. Imaged Friday 14th April. the bright star to the upper right is Tau Her. mag 4 Vixen 4" Refractor at 660mm and Sony A6000
FSQ 85 Telescope, SX694 CCD, Canon 70d,  AZ EQ6GT mount
