About this image

The dangers of trusting software, Volume 5 example 15. A well known piece of planetarium software, that will remain nameless, informed me that this comet was mag 9 last night. So, while I tussled with a driver that was broken and had a cup of tea, I left the telescope taking pictures of it. Looking at the result, I'm thinking more like 17-18th.

Not a great image, but a comet nonetheless.
