C/2018Y1 Iwamoto from the back garden. Easily picked up with the 50mm 1.8 lens at f2 and 13 seconds just to the east of Regulus. Also observed with the 10x50 bins and was in the same field as Regulus. Looks more condensed on the image than it did through the bins. Going by nearby stars I reckoned it was mag 7 -7.5 or thereabouts.
