Hi Christian, very nice sketch, I appreciate the details that I can't read with my refractor. This is a lovely comet isn't it ?

Great sketch. Can't wait to catch this guy tonight. Interesting to hear that you saw motion in 10 minutes, must be flying. My plan was to do a sketch at the beginning of my session and then another at the end to compare motion...but it sounds like I might need to do them a little closer together, maybe an hour or two.

Thanks for this Christian, nice sketch.
The good surprises for me are the tail length and the magnitude.
So, we can try to observe some more "not cloudy" nights

Christian,

Nice work on both these sketches--good observations capturing the rapidly changing appearance of the comet.

I looked for the comet about 10:30 PM local time on the 12th (0330 on the 13th UT) with my 12x36 binoculars but was unable to see it. Transparency was poor which was a limiting factor, but I don't know if it would have been visible with my binoculars even with good transparency--I've only looked at it with my 35cm scope.
