Probably the last wide field Lovejoy images for me

Hi All,

Went to Mount Macedon this morning. Could still (just) see the comet visually, even photographically it's getting difficult without a tracking mount.

Anyway, I got some images, and have made a couple of animations.

Well done Stuart

Wren and I spent the whole night at the Clubhouse trying to observe and photograph it last night/this morning and yep, it's a really faint sucker now!
