Comet Holmes fainter tonight, 11/5

We fought with clouds tonight and bad seeing (and bad focus), but we all agreed the comet was larger and fainter tonight. The nucleus was too faint to see with our direct vision in the six-inch. The "blob" of material is taking on a more lenticular shape and the nucleus has some sort of trail extending from it.
