Comet or flop?

Recommended Posts

it's moving north roughly so I think you'll have to get out of the garden and find a NW view. it was easily visible in 7x36 bins tonight (albeit fainter than previous sightings) with the sharp point of Cass pointing more or less at it. it's within the same binocular field as M31 currently.

Very pleased, I saw it for the first time this evening in my scope. I know it wasn't but it seemed as if the scope was almost horizontal.

By the time the clouds thinned out tonight, the comet was down in the light pollution. I caught a widefield shot of it, but both the comet and M31 are hardly visible. It's meant to be better tomorrow, so you never know.
