A sequence of 235 temporal maps, with a fine-scale difference enhancement (i.e. using temporal difference images with a wide dynamic range). This shows the main dust tail of C/2011 L4 from 2013 March 11 00:00 UT until March 18 02:00 UT. Dust is displayed from the region of 0.3 < βr < 3 with a range of ejection times from 2013 March 01 00:00 UT through to March 13 00:00 UT.
