Hello Nick,

Yes, it was an incredible sight alright. At that time I was actually out two early mornings in a row. I probably missed it the first morning as I was concentrating on Mars IIRC. I only saw NEOWISE when I walked back to my house for a drink of water. I put my hand on the door handle and glanced northwards. At first I don’t think my brain really registered it. I eventually realised that it was NEOWISE. I’d looked for it earlier with no success. It did give me a chance to use my Lumicon comet filter! Thanks for the links. I’ll try to find C/2022 E3 in January if the weather allows it.

Telescopes: One Newtonian, three Maksutov Cassegrains, seven refractors, and a large SCT.
