Update Catalog of Nuclear Magnitudes of Periodic Comets

A catalog of a sample of 225 periodic comets is presented with our ``best estimates'' of their absolute nuclear magnitudes HN = V(1,0,0). It includes either Jupiter family (JF) comets (defined as those with Tisserand constants T > 2 and perihelion distance inside Jupiter q < QJ), Halley-type comets (T < 2) and a few Centaurs comets (T > 2 and perihelion distance outside Jupiter q >QJ).

LIGHT CCD CURVE OF COMET C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS FROM MPC DATABASE IAU BASED IN 2.836 OBSERVATIONS ...

I just finished my last differential analysis curve ccd light based in more of 2.800 ccd's observations from MPC IAU , the light curve reduced the comet mred-log r sample 3 laws of different brightness due to the change of the strong component of the predominant chemical volatile comet, CH4 -> CO-> H2O in the heliocentric range 2.5 H2O, my analysis does not show favorable data regarding the brightness of the comet and I have doubts that it displays bright, my statistical analysis shows a 80% chance of not exceeding magnitude m1 = +8, and 20% to m1 = +6, ICQ gives m1 = 8.5 theoretical and actual visual observations really it 9.5-10.5
