C2013A1 approaching NGC362

Another effort in the cold of the evening, the dew and cold eventually beat me. The comet approaches as seen in the EON 80mm using DMK51 imager.
C20131A1 and NGC362
Update 20140830 - A much milder evening, not as cold. And as C2013A1 was passing by 47 Tuc and SMC. I had another go . A small image. I can't seem to get much light out of the EON 80 mm so may be  bigger light bucket?
C2013A1 passing by 47 Tuc

Update - 20140905 - This small comet moving along....

Update 20140906  A little bit closer to Mars.....

update 20140927 - Looking for this comet in current STEREO images is proving difficult, I think I have it in this colored scaled crop from HI2B wide fov.
