05:45 - alarm clock rang, looked out the window - Crux was there, sky not great
05:55 - Venus looks halo-ed (oh no! low clouds!)
06:00 - Powered up Pc and printed star chart
06:10 - Set up the "co-axis - twin- lenses tripod" setup after moving a blocking potted plant.
06:15 - Star-hopped (25mm lens) Venus/Cap Alpha1/Beta to general area of comet.
06:20 - Switched over to 100mm lens/Mintron, comet popped out as a soft circular spot, very close to a mag 8.5+ star
