Lots of comets on view... apparently was created by Seanie_Morris

I was just checking up on heavens above (and on Neill's October Sky Guide... ;)) to see what's of interest on its site, and they have the following comets listed:
C/2008 A1 McNaught | 85P Boethin | 205P Giacobini | C/2008 J2 Beshore | C/2006 OF2 Broughton | C/2007 N3 Lulin | 19P Borrelly

Most are around mag +10 or +11, quite faint (and one useless to irish astronomers at the moment, McNaught). Has anyone tried looking them up in the night sky recently?

No, but I'd like to try and see a few.
I wonder what is the limit of the mag I could see through the
5'' etx in a dark site like the Burren?
