Comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) in Cassiopeia

Comet Lovejoy was a very nice binocular target this week. Its tail seems bigger than it was in December and January and it is alot fainter. Not able to see it naked eye, but my 20x80 binoculars bring it out as a huge, kind of faint, grayish fuzzball. Long exposure images bring out green, but I dont see green when viewing it in the binos, just gray.
