Guys,

There is a really neat photo on SpaceWeather right now which includes a visible trail as well as structure within the nucleus.

I may have a break in the weather to finally have "first light" (visually and photographically) with this comet later tonight.

Is that the one by Sebastian Voltmer? Truly awesome image - I just don't have the sky to get anywhere near that!

Hi Paul,

Yes, this is the photo .... very stunning work!

I will be up all night trying to catch a 2-hr sucker hole for my first glimpse. Fingers crossed.
