Comet 342P/SOHO

Just a heads up of a small window of opportunity to see/photograph
Periodic Comet 342P SOHO...currently mag 7.8 on its 5.5 year journey around the sun.
Visible in the west from now until early october, when it gets too close to the sun to view
Check Stellarium for more details.

Reckon my Celestron hand controller could track this? Or maybe an ASIAIR?

Just need accurate GOTO or star hop to find it.
Its very close to Venus atm. But you probably only have 1 or 2 days left before the opportunity to see it closes.
Cheers!
