I used the same star hop myself last night when fine high cloud cleared at about 10pm. Catalina was just visible in my 8x50 finder and a fine sight in my 140 mm refractor. The coma was bright with some condensation towards the central spot. A very faint diffuse short tail was visible in moments of better seeing. The comet was set against a pretty star field.

Cheers
Steve
