I managed to image this comet last night - it is in outburst (3 - 4 magnitudes) and would otherwise be miles outside the limiting magnitude of my gear. Guesstimate around m1 = 14, give or take. In the image, I left the little, perfectly-round 'false star' that mimics the movement of the comet - only way I can effectively stack very faint comets not much above the noise level in each sub!
