About this image

First sighting & image capture of this comet I’ve managed from my home observatory in Conon Bridge, Scottish Highlands.

A very tricky capture as there was a small narrow gap in the clouds just at the right moment. The dawn sky was brightening quickly at this northern latitude (57N) and I didn’t have much more time left to catch the comet.
