A much more cloudy night. It was fairly clear whilst the comet was behind the tree on the left, then lots of cloud for the next 2 hours. The image is a stack of 2x5s indoor exposures taken during a brief gap in the clouds. The comet continues to display a nice dust tail.

After 02:00 UT the sky started to clear again, although at 54 deg. N I was observing the comet in strong twilight which swamped all except its coma.
