Love that Kerry :smiley:

I find the binocular view of this comet the most engaging I think. Even more than the scope views. It's getting some clouds and other stuff in there that makes the view !

Very good sketch indeed Kerry.

I agree with John regarding viewing the Comet through binoculars!  Its a pity the weather forecast for viewing next week isn't looking too good for us islanders over here!

Take care...

Hi, Enjoyed the sketch, here is my sketch from earlier this morning. At one point the comet was being passed by two satellites on a parallel orbit (likely to be some of the Starlink satellites). They neatly framed the tail. So my sketch records the natural wonder of a comet with humankind's contribution to the night sky. In my sketch through binoculars they are the two brighter 'stars' either side of the tail.

Agree that the view through binoculars beats a telescope view.
