C/2013 in Pegasus

Comet C/2013 PanSTARRS is currently travelling across Pegasus constellation. It is approaching to the Sun to reach perihelion in April, 2016, and it is currently moving away from Earth (but it will change after comet pass perihelion - we meet again :) 
C/2013 X1 PanSTARRS orbit (comet is moving CCW, Earth is moving CW)
Two days ago I pictured this comet. Transparency was poor, but the comet is quite bright, so it appeared clearly.
Picture below is RGB stack 3x10x3 minutes, so 90 minutes total exposure. Current setup: TS130/910 0.79x, Atik383, EQ6.
