A quick shot converted in camera to lpg, and taken from the garden using Pentax K70 + Tamron 90mm macro lens.  The moon was up and a few thin clouds around. I found the comet with luck using the star Vega as a reference. The comet is right of the star cluster M10 can you spot it? 

20 seconds f3.2 ISO 3200

The fact you've found it with a 90 mm lens has given me some hope of trying to find it. I may have to try tonight

Yeah the moon will be up about 1.30am 

I used stellarium on my phone to get an idea ware to point my camera, I used the star Vega as a reference point. Quite lucky as ten minutes later the comet shifted behind shrubs. It's just a grab n go shot might try again when the moon is out the way.
