Martin Crow managed to not only image but also create a short animation, as can be seen below.

The images were taken on 2 January 2005 between 20:03UT and 21:23UT. In the animation shows the comet tracking across the sky and its tail dynamically changing shape with a possible hint of a detachment.

Now for the techie stuff:

Each original image was obtained using a Celestron C8 SCT at f3.3 with a MX916 CCD camera. The exposure was 20 seconds and an interval of 60 seconds between shots. The relatively short exposure was designed to give an unsaturated nucleus so that some photometry might be done on it. All of the images were dark frame subtracted and flat fielded prior to processing. Each of the frames is a group of 5 original images converted into and AVI file and then seriously processed in Registax. The resulting images were then save as JPEGs so that they could be opened in Adobe Photo Shop to align each frame.
