I was out observing the Orion nebula etc. when I remembered that this comet was going to pass open cluster M35 (the morning of 10-16). Having little time before the Sun starting coming up, I quickly took a low power shot. I was using my XX12g dob and iPhone 13 Pro Max through a TeleVue 27mm Panoptic. 

 

Not that good of a pic because of the star distortion caused by the eyepiece through the F/4.9 system, but I did manage to get it. applause.gif  I wish I had taken a closer pic of the comet but I did'nt think of it at the time.

 

Comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko, ~10.6 mag.
