Didn't think I was going to catch this one due to the poor weather (seemingly non-stop clouds night after night). This comet won't be back for another 50,000 years, so missing out on it would have been disappointing. The forecast indicated there would be a brief window of clear skies Wednesday night, so I headed out to our club's (Buffalo Astronomical Association) observatory. The forecast was accurate. We had a window of about an hour and a half to view and image the comet. This was the first opportunity for me to try out my new Dedicated Astronomy Camera (First Light) and it did not disappoint.
