This image of Comet 252P LINEAR in Ophiuchus was taken April 10, 2016. I only got to process it now because my old laptop died and it took a while to configure my new one with all the astronomical software needed. Taken through a Borg 77ED at f4.3 331mm FL and Nikon D7000 at iso3200, 7x 2minute subs. The comet was 0.122AU from Earth and 1.06AU from the Sun. It was visible through 10x50 binoculars.
