Holmes Beginning to Show a Tail!

As this comet slowly turns around the sun, it's tail will become more prominent. The blue area to the upper right of the comet's disk is the beginnings of a tail. The green area is a cloud of gas surrounding the entire comet. I tried to capture what little tail may be visible through a series of long exposures (4 min) with my DSLR and biggest scope.
