Cheers Glen,

 

It was a lot fainter than I expected but still impressive all the same. Here
are 

a couple of photos. The street light in one photo is the street light out
front 

of the French restaurant up near the lookout.

finally got to see it, took a few snaps nothing really spectacular. But
naked

eye was excellent. Beautiful and clear up on the Plateau this morning.

 

I'll try and post a photo later after I try and clean them up a little.

Hi All

I finally caught the comet on film yesterday, and yes, the tail is amazing.
You can see the pic on my blog at  <http://odillesphotos.wordpress.com/>
http://odillesphotos.wordpress.com/ - the tail is faint but I was very
chuffed to finally see the comet properly (I've been up at 2.30 most
mornings hoping for holes in those darned clouds)!

Cheers, Odille

Saw the comet this morning from Gibralter Rd. Clifton about 35 km west of
Tenterfield with 12x60 binocs.
The naked eye tail was 28 degrees long. AMAZING! The comet was brighter than
the Norma star cloud.
Lovejoy will be in front of the Milky Way tomorrrow.

Also saw LJ yesterday from Tenterfiel airport but the head was lost in the
haze and light pollution above Tenterfield.

Used the 16" last night, great views. NGC 1365 was a easy Z shape and I keep
seeing galaxies I have never seen before.
