Ah, I noticed on Stellarium that it was starting to creep above the horizon in the early hours. Well captured. Looking forward to some good views.

Wow!

   Thanks for sharing that image.

     Care to guess what Catalina's current magnitude is?

 Really looking forward to my first proper view.

Meant to be slightly brighter than mag. 5.  It would also have at least a magnitude of dimming/extinction by the atmosphere at that low altitude.

A lucky break indeed, but you've captured it well. I'm looking forward to it becoming a decent sight.
