Spectrophotometric observations of Comet Austin (1982g) in the bands of CN, C2, and C3 are presented, and fit to a Haser model for the cometary brightness distribution. The lifetimes of the parent and daughter molecules, as well as the velocity of the molecules leaving the cometary surface are determined from the model fit. The absolute production rate of molecules is also determined.
