My first image of this comet from my garden in Chelmsford. Over Christmas I was away in Somerset and had seen it from down there. Tonight I rushed home from work to take advantage of the nice clear sky. I had a good view of the comet visually in 11x80bins as the Moon was rising in the east. It was quite a large fuzz-ball but with no sign of a tail. This comet is definitely worth a loook and should be fairly easy to find with a pair of bins using the chart here. The Moon is now moving out of the way and this comet will be at its best for us over the next couple of weeks.
