I managed to get a first glimpse of Comet 64P/ Swift-Gehrels this evening around 7ish. In the 4" refractor it's visible, but not that obvious.  I could not see it at 19x but at 50x a ghostly haze was just visible, I could also see it at 33x with a 15mm plossl. Conditions were good but hazy cloud was around and the sky still had a hint of firework activity. It could be just brightening a little and is well up under Andromeda, also worth mentioning that Sky Safari is spot on. Made for a good night after the Moon and Saturn show!

Has anybody been following this one. P46 seems to be taking the limelight. Might have a go at 64P with the scope if I get a clear night.
