Where's The Comet? (Comet Visibility)

Recommended Posts

In view of the recent hyperbole  regarding the latest "Comet of the Century" I have revisited some old notes. (attached)

Managed to get it tonight in the 10x50 bino's, very very difficult  to see , looks like another disapointing 'could have been' , so far anyway !!.

Hi'  I use a webpage named cometchasing.skyhound.com each comet will have a finder chart in blue which will show where the comets are in the night sky. Mark

As recent comets go it's pretty good. As with all extended faint objects it will be much better from dark sites. E.g. at dark sites M110 is actually much more obvious than M32

Spotted from Wiltshire in 10 x 50 and 15 x 70 bins.  OK in 10 x 50, far better in 15 x 70.  Rural skies not far from Salisbury Plain.
