Well little late but had to wait after work to process the images.  Here's Comet C/2021 A1 Leonard and M3.  From my location (Puerto Rico) by the time raised from the horizon it was already passed M3.

The small galaxy on the right of the image is NGC 5263

 

After taking the images I installed the 2" Stellarvue diagonal and a 16mm Nagler and I was able to see both M3 and Comet Leonard thru the eyepiece, diffuse but distinguishable.

FOV:  1.35° x 0.90°
