Nice record of twists in the tail
We're feeling for you folks up the coast. After months of hot weather, high cloud and smoke haze, we've had a few days in a row of the clearest skies in a long time. Perfect for comet hunting.. but no consolation for you right this moment!

I'm no expert on comets, but I understand that's effectively what happened.. you can see the lumps drifting back along the tail from when that happened. But a new tail keeps reforming.

How do you find the 6D so far?
Have just been using it in a hurry on a couple of nights.. haven't done any testing or comparisons so far. Performance looks great but the button layout for playback/zoom is annoying to use in the dark.
