Comet Lovejoy

Comet Lovejoy is really getting lower in the sky each dawn as it approaches perihelion on December 21. It is visible as a diffused smudge with the naked eyes and exhibits a faint but distinct tail through binoculars. It is no longer visible from my third floor observatory so I had to set up my telescope on the roof of my house! Prudence dictates that the precarious setup be my last to capture this lovely comet.
