There are a few good shots of this comet floating about the internet, one earned an APOD just yesterday.  I spotted the comet visually this morning in binoculars at 5:30. The comet is just barely visible naked eye and is more easily seen in binoculars.  Unfortunately the comet only rose about three degrees or so before the sun rose, so it never climbed high enough over my roof to get a shot at it.  I'll have to wait until it becomes a nighttime object in the next week or so.

I'm finishing an Ha sequences of the Crescent nebula right now (on the last shot), and then I'm swinging over to see if I can shoot it.

A slightly updated version, stack of 10 5-second images through a WO GT71 scope (336mm FL) with ZWO ASI183mm-pro camera.

I got a few pics through my different camera lenses this morning.  It was very visible to the naked eye for me.  Cameras used Canon XSi modified and Canon T6.  Lenses used 50mm F1.8, 14mm F2.8, 85mm F1.8, Tamron 70-300mm at 300mm.  0.5 to 2 second exposures.  Cropped or rotated some of them due to wired angles from my Omegon LX2 tracker.

Great variety of views!

Yeah, it was really easy naked-eye.  

I went here:

...to get real-time RA/DEC coordinates.  Slewed the scope there and it was bang-on.

Great shots all! Conditions were marginal here with ground clutter/high humidity. I'll need a mobile rig as my observatory cannot image objects low in the north.
