A Comet as a challenge for beginners.

After about 20 minutes the corrector plate froze up so I put the scope away and went in to warm up in front of the fire. This is the fourth comet I've observed since Garradd in 2011. Not a lot for seasoned comet hunters, but that's one more than I'd seen in the previous 40 years!
I hope I can follow this one for a while. Thanks Sat!

After that from around the 10th I will be moving my attention to another comet (C/2012 F6 Lemmon) which can be observed from my latitude for a few days before it sails further south. Hoping to get some good views of it.
And it seems like this might really turn out be the year of comets!
