Hi all
I found the comet with my first image. I started at dusk with a green filter at 13 35 + 13.20. The comet was at the edge of the field of view, but was immediately recognizable as a small condensed comet. The 13x60sec total image shows a 3.5 'coma that is well condensed. I could see a tail on the clear filter image. SWNA21D is currently 10m5 bright. Best Regards Michael Jäger
