    Absolutely good advice. To photograph the solar eclipse, I used baader film to protect both my camera and eyes. Apparently, even 10-stop filters let enough IR light through to damage both.

    For this comet, it is faint enough that everything I see says that you should be looking 30-45 minutes after sunset.

    I'm going to try both nights this weekend to capture it. I'm not sure if I'll be able to with it being so low in the horizon. I was able to get a photo of Holmes Comet back in 2007. http://www.jrogdenphotography.com/ni...5956#h22ef5956

    ahab's suggestion is right on, it always works for me.

    Nothing in NH. Will give it another shot later this week.

    I've been looking forward to this for a while, but unfortunately the weather here in Portland is not cooperating.

    The last comet I photographed (McNaught) was six years ago:

    It clouded over today. Maybe it'll work out later this week.

    At least so far, I don't think you are missing anything. All the photos I've seen are from the southern hemisphere.

    Partly cloudy all week in my area, I really hope it's clear at night for this.

    Unfortunately no. Most of the east coast is clouded over. I'll give it another shot Thursday or Friday.
