Out with Celestron Starsense Explorer 8 inch Dob, set up by 10.03pm, comet quickly in view thanks to SS by 10.05. Observed in ES 24/68, then Morpheus 17.5mm.  Very easy in 8inch, nice coma, central condensation and tail heading down through the field,  right across field (1 degree) of Mopheus. Guessstimate of comt mag around 6.2.  Located midway from Mars to Aldebaran,  comet will be 1.5 deg E of the latter at midnight on 15th. Screen shot from phone showing location below.


Then did a tour round mostly open clusters, Orion Neb first then in order, M35, M44, M67, M37, M36, M38, M3I, Double Cluster and ET/Owl Cluster.  

I had another look at the comet before packing up at 10.58pm.
