Thanks for the map. (I’m not familiar with Guide 9).

In the images I uploaded, the comet is near the star HIP 3887 (the star shown by red cross), but my copy of Stellarium, with comet data updated at the time of posting ((choosing “Import orbital elements in MPC format“) ~04:00 UT, 19/04/2020), for time and date 04:55 UT 16/04/2020, also seems to be a bit out.  The comet on the map is still shown further away than what I imaged it at.  Map ref: Stellarium.
