Nice shot, well done. Should be seeing more of this comet over the next month. Certainly something I'll be aiming at on the weekend if we get clear skies and I suspect many others will be pointing cameras in Wirtanens direction as well.

Great shot Bojan. I think I can see a hint of the ion tail. It's definitely getting brighter and in a good position for imaging.

It is closer and moving a bit faster (45 minutes drift is evident), and brighter...
But so is Moon, so.. no spectacular images yet.

Bojan..NICE!
Just saw it in Large 20 x 80s days ago in Sydney...as a glow ..some might mistake very bright M77 (in scopes) nearby Menkar for it at first..though thats much smaller really.

It could get brighter than 4.8 and become Naked eye in the Cities ...lets hope so.
