First image I took of the C/2016 M1 (PANSTARRS), this comet will reach its maximum brightness on next June when it could be observable visually through small telescopes or giant binoculars. In this image taken on April 24, 2018 can be seen a faint greenish coma wich has grown until a diameter of 6 arcminutes, al same time appears certain dust emission toward northwest (to up right).
