Hi All-

Spent some time chasing sucker holes around southern Arizona to shoot the
comet this morning.  There isn't much time to do so as we have weather
moving in the next couple days and the moon is moving into the morning sky
too in a few days.  Finally got some good sky about 35 miles SE of Tucson
and shot some digital images with my 11" Newt.  BTW, I don't have a
website, and if anyone wants to host a picture or two...

Anyway, I could see it naked eye this morning!  You may remember I
couldn't see it saturday morning, but today, perhaps because it was up a
little higher, the coma could clearly be seen unaided below Delphinius. 
You definately need a dark sky for that, however.  It got to nearly 15
degrees altitude before twilight started.  Anyone else fight the clouds
this morning?
