Tom, Jimmy here's another item for a long unused observing list.  Can't wait 
to get out and have a look even if it is before a better position for 
viewing.  Again, thanks Tom.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for the heads up. It looks like he discovered it with at hyperstar 
type setup on an 8" sct (60 second exposures at ( f 2.1) I have a hyperstar 
on an 11" (I think JD has the same but is in a better dark sky sight) 
Hopefully the sky's clear sometime soon so we can take a shot at it. That 
now gives us a couple of comets to look forward to.

Thanks again,

Jimmy Ray
