I saw the Comet tonight with 8x40 binoculars and in a 4inch refractor. Its larger and brighter than I expected and easy to find being in Apus, but basically near Alpha in Triangulum Austalae. The Moon was above the horizon when I first viewed it, but was low and about to set.
The prior post describes it well. I could not see a tail.
