Hi Paul,as i mention in the October Journal Sky Notes, recent reports on Elenin suggest it is breaking up, is a lot fainter than expected, and may not survive perihelion.Of course, it is still worth checking it out – comets are notoriously unpredictable! It will be a couple of days into October before it will be high enough to see in the morning, before sunrise.Callum
