Well done getting this comet, which is currently crawling up from the southern horizon. I know that Andrew Robertson and Owen Brazell saw it visually last night and Denis Buczynski imaged it the previous night from northern Scotland. There are now no excuses (apart from the weather) for those of us in southern England!
