Cooler air drifting down from the north banishes the cloud allowing a good view of Comet 21P

Superb. This really puts the comet in its place and complements the images taken with long FL scopes.

I can't wait to see your wide field pics of 46P/Wirtanen!

David, thanks so much for your comment. Really enjoy your pictures too. Now that 46P/Wirtanen is getting higher (and above the roof of the house!) I hope to get a decent wide field picture - just need the clouds to clear.
