I have observed this comet first time during Messeir Marathon 2002. The above mosaic was created from images taken on March 27, 2002 from Harrowsmith, Ontario. All images were acquired with Cookbook 245 CCD camera and Celestron Ultima 8 SCT at f3.0. Each tile is composed of ten white integrations (8 sec. each) combined using AIP4WIN.
North is up. At that time comet was located in Andromeda.
