Comet Neowise - getting higher but fading fast.

Had to have a go at finding this comet with all the hype and great views we've been receiving from those north of the equator. Would like to have had a go at this a week or so ago but from 37.5 degrees south, there was no hope. Could not see it with the naked eye or binoculars, an almost full moon didn't help with that either. It's fading away now as it leaves our solar system but at least I got something to show for my efforts from the outskirts of Melbourne.
