Damian has created this composite overview image showing 67P between September and November.  He reports that it's been quite a nice looking comet in larger scopes, with the tail seeming to become more fan shaped with time, though a narrow component to the tail has remained pretty constant the last few months.
All images are LRGB taken remotely using a 24"CDK telescope and FLI camera in Siding Spring, Australia.
