My second Comet observation/sketch. I forgot to mark the EP/magnification, can someone help me out? The choices are:
7mm 217x (don't think so)
10.5mm 145x
17mm 89x
35mm 44x (don't think so)

Sorry Aaron, can't help on the magnification as I haven't viewed the object (I'd guess the 17mm at 89x based on the FOV but its just a guess) but your observation has gotten me curious about it . . . looks like it is a wonderful object to view and I like the details in your sketch.
