I might have another bash at it. It is a very nice comet indeed. I have spotted it a couple of times already, and I understand it is getting brighter. Well worth a look

I have imaged it on a couple of nights, nice green glow around it.

Definitely having a hunt for that tonight.     Is it noticeably green visually?

Probably futile with the full Moon out, but I'll try a quick snap with my 50mm lens tonight. I'd be pleased with the tiniest smudge, but that could be too much to ask.

Supposed to be a clear sky here for most of the night.

I think I'm going to go to bed soon and get out for a couple of hours in the early hours.

I'll definitely be looking for Panstarrs.

Thanks for the reminder.
