I remarked an outburst of the comet of around 2 mag on an image of April, 6

Own generated light curve of the outburst, light curve of Cometas_Obs.
The outburst is still going on and is reaching on a second stage the level of around 15.5 mag on April, 16.  (Detection of the second stage by J38 Faustino Garcia)
Meanwhile the level of magnitude is 15.8 on April, 24.

240P/NEAT   by Bernhard Haeusler, 2011-04-24  B/W               animation of the outburst on 13 days from 2011-03-20 to 2011-04-24 

14 x 2 min. exposure, 2011-04-24 UT 19:41 - 20:12,  12" SCT  f-5.65 + CCD ST10XME
15.76 mag, coma: 21, tail: 24" in PA107

On the animation you can see the development of the outburst since 2011-03-20 until 2011-04-24.
Here are the data of the magnitudes (Focas II box 10" x 10") of each single image of the animation:

2011-03-20:  18.0 mag   coma: 8"   tail: 6"
2011-03-29:  18.1 mag   coma: 8"   tail: 7"
2011-04-06:  16.2 mag   coma: 11" tail: 10"
2011-04-08:  16.1 mag   coma: 15" tail: 11"
2011-04-09:  16.2 mag   coma: 17" tail: 15"
2011-04-10:  16.2 mag   coma: 13" tail: 12"
2011-04-17:  15.5 mag   coma: 13" tail: 19"
2011-04-18:  15.6 mag   coma: 23" tail: 26"
2011-04-19:  15.6 mag   coma: 25" tail: 32"
2011-04-20:  15.6 mag   coma: 25" tail: 27"
2011-04-21:  15.6 mag   coma: 20" tail: 23"
2011-04-22:  15.7 mag   coma: 19" tail: 21"
2011-04-24:  15.8 mag   coma: 21" tail: 24"

In reality, the comet is showing various shapes during the progress of the outburst.
On the first stage of the outburst (16 mag level) the coma is small, sharp and round, the tail is poorly developed.
On the second stage (15.5 mag level) the coma is blowing up till 25" and a short tail is visible.
