Really excellent view this morning in bins. Comet superb in strip of clear sky with dark bands of cloud above and below.  Observed from home (Thorpe le Soken) through open upstairs window. 15 x 70s showed no extra detail to 10 x 50s.  Tail around 2 deg at 1 o’clock position and closer to 2.5 – 3 deg with averted vision.  Observed from 01:25UT to 02:04UT when brightening sky, rising comet and approaching cloud caused view to deteriorate. Suspected it naked eye for short period around 01:40UT.  A decent comet at last ! you have been forgiven, Nick.
