Testing TS130 APO on comet 123P/West-Hartley

Hi,
Clouds and more clouds, then suddenly there was a clear sky.

I took my TS130 APO refractor out on the balcony. I have a very narrow free sight. These nights we have the comet 123P/West-Hartley low at the Eastern horizont. If I understand correct you also can see it.

Here at city the light pollution is heavy and I didn't believe I could catch a weak comet at magnitude 12.9.

I just took 40 x 30 seconds photos and didn't see much on each frame. But after stacking them together the comet was clearly visible. The camera is a Canon 6D.

I have the photo here together with some information:

That wasJanuary 19, now its January 30, elevns days later, not a clear sky yet.

This was one of the rare moments when I could use my telescope.
