The photo is a superposition of four unguided 8-second exposures. Despite thin clouds, haze, and nearby bright moon the comet was dimly visible for the naked eye. Due to contrast enhancement of the picture the extended comet looks brighter than alpha Persei. The comet's magnitude was estimated as 2.0-2.5.
