C/2008 Q3 Garradd Outburst

I observed C/2008 Q3 Garradd this morning after an email i received from ASV Comet Section regarding this comet, i made it out at mag 9.0 this morning from Guyra, NSW.
The comet is expected to be around mag 14.0 but is much brighter due to an outburst a couple of days ago.
I could make it out in my 7x50 Bins, obviously from a dark sky location, and i also made obs with my 8" SCT, both obs put the comet around mag 9.
Q3 is currently in Indus.

Official obs yet to be posted.

Cheers!
