HI There,
This comet is starting to get difficult in binoculars but is prominant with a 200mm Newt.This evening it was close to a 6.5 magnitude star roughly 2 degrees from the reddish magnitude 3.5 Lambda Draconis.
The image was taken at 21:10 using a Canon 1100D 10mp DSLRwith a Sigma 300mm fl telephoto piggybacked on a driven EQ5 Helios Explorer 200 Newt.Exposure 10" ISO 6500.
Regards Les.
