Just had a look through the binoculars there. Nice fuzzy shape.

The Moon is rising.

Took a look just now. Appears larger again. Can now see a couple of stars behind the comet. Skies are a little hazy unfortunately. :cry:

That's a good image Paul. Compares very well to what it looks like through my scope.
What camera was that taken with?
