I haven't been on here on cloudy nights too much since I've been having different health problems the last couple of years starting with a "frozen" shoulder and now with my hearing problems(soon to be solved I hope).Anyways I was checking out Obsession telescopes website and saw mention of a comet that might prove to be spectacular next year. Have I missed out on any comets that were bright enough with a tail to be viewed with a binocular?? I think when things get back to normal for me I'm going to wheel out my 10" Classic. I need to see Jupiter again and the galaxies and nebulas...

Pannstars is looking like it will under perform compared to its early hype. Expect to see it at mag 4 or 5 in March in dark skies. It will initially brighter but it will be in significant twilight and setting early during its brightest period.
Also see my post on C/2012 K5 (LINEAR) - that will be a good binnocular object in January
