Despite the murk, 46P was actually naked eye (with a hint of averted vision) tonight.  Here it is headed into Taurus: brightest close star is t Tau.  I'll be out on 16th for the close pass to the Pleiades.

Thanks for posting your image, lovely colours. I was fortunate last night to view and compare the comet through 10 x 50 binoculars and my 81mm Vixen binoculars at x48. I think I may have seen the comet more when it was between the two Mag 3 stars in the photo and I'm really pleased to see that the two brighter stars are a different hue, they certainly looked that way in the bino's!

Hope the weather allows a another composition later this week.

Thanks once again for posting,
