Hi Terry,
I noticed that the source of the 8.6 mag has consistently higher magnitudes across a lot of different comets! Must be the location, mind you the 8.6 estimate was made with 25x100 Bins.

Visual estimates are usually brighter than CCD ones anyway but still, 8.6 is pretty high. Con Stoitsis managed to grab it with his 11x70mm Bins under a dark sky, i tried using the 8x50 finder and my 7x50's (which was a bit too ambitious) but you just never know!

Keep up the good work!
