Comet C/2021 A1 (Leonard) imaged on November 15, 2021, since my previous image taken four days earlier, it had increased in brightness from magnitude 9.5 to 8.5, being already observable through binoculars from dark sites. Regarding morphology, its coma remained at 11' in angular size but with obvious changes in its tail: although weak, a narrow and long ionic tail is clearly differentiated on the right and a wider and short dust tail on the left.
