I did a quick star hop to Comet Johnson after my Jupiter observations this evening. The comet has faded slightly since my last observation on 21st. The coma is smaller. There was still some brightening to a tight bright central spot. Best view was at 62X.
It is certainly climbing quickly in the sky and it will be interesting to see how long it can be seen as it continues to fade and the Moon starts to interfere.
Scope Vixen NA140SS on TRex mount and LVW13 giving 62X.
