Thanks Pete

I just had another check on the forecast, it looks like tomorrow could be one of our clearer days, I'll get set up for it, and hope

Good luck for tomorrow, though maybe sacrifice a Nikon to the cloud gods, that oughta do it

Being a Canon user, I'm all for the Nikon sacrifice

Be lucky on your Roxborough trip

Wasn't till I posted when I thought, oh oh, Tony might be a Nikon user but, having seen your images

Canny beat the old Canon v Nikon banter, all tongue in cheek.

New video timelapse from the Philippines capturing the comet.
Tony this is how I seen it yesterday for a few sec before it went into the cloud
But my friend today is clear skies over here so I am going out later with the wife to
snag a picture if it remains clear.
