Hello all,I was able to image this comet in the dawn sky in hazy conditions and low altitude, however my images seem to show that activity is now beggining to increase in this comet. You may be able to see in my image that there is evendence of streamers just north of the comet head. It would intersiting to see if other image also showed these features. You will need to have clear horizons in the dawn sky to image this brightening comet.Denis Buczynski Secretary Comet Section BAA.http://britastro.org/baa/index.php?view=detail&id=1582&option=com_joomga...

What would you estimate the magnitude to be.I've tried to look for it several times this week. but every night when the sky has been clear in the evening, its clouded over in the early hours.CheersJohn Turley

John,It's probably between 11 and 12 at the moment but quite difficult and fairly low in the morning sky.Nick.
