    Great job on those images Brent. If I could get a good night I’d love to get out and put my Atik Infinity on the comet as well. Clear skies.

    Last night 46P was playing Peek-a-boo, other areas of the sky were intermittent with the odd high thin cloud messin' with my FWHM. Tonight is supposed to be getting even cooler, BUT, @ 2300hrs we're supposed to have "Above average" transparency and "Excellent" Seeing. Who can pass that up??? Better have an "Old Guy Nap" this afternoon....
