Number of comets imaged: 12
Number of comets observed visually: 19

    Terminology:

    magnitude:      brightness estimate of the comet
    coma:           size estimate of the comet's coma, measured in arcminutes
    condensation:   degree of condensation (0=completely diffuse, 9=completely stellar)
