Started this  mornings  observing  from small bedroom looking North East at 01.30 U.T. and  continued  until  04.10 when Dawn light  became over powering . Sky conditions  did not look  good  only Polaris , Capella and  the W of Cassiopeia could be seen at the  start of observations and   conditions  failed to improve.  Nothing of the Comet  could be seen  either naked  eye  of using 10x50 Binoculars.  However in  imaging using the Lens and camera combination  as above  the comet was  captureds on 5 frames . During observing I has the Site  Heavens-  running and updating it  as time passed to  try to  move the  camera  to where I guessed   was the correct  position along the Horizon.

Very  very happy  with the outcome.  Many thanks to Nick James and Peter Carson   for  their advice over the  past days .
