I could capture DM001, the newly discovered comet in Virgo today at dawn. I only had 15 minutes in very thick fog (horizontal visibility was cca. 50 meters when I could take some pics....) 300mm lens, cropped (I failed with positioning the comet into the center of the f.o.v. as even the neighbouring bright stars were barely visible through the viewfinder of my camera and I only had to estimate its location). Fog completely closed after 15 minutes and when it opened again sky was already too bright.
